Laura Huertas Millán

Born in 1983 in Bogota, Colombia
Lives and works in París, France

Laura Huertas Millán is a Franco-Colombian artist and filmmaker. Graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris and the National Study of Contemporary Arts in France Le Fresnoy, she courses doctoral studies at the Ecole Normale Supérieure rue d’Ulm and at Beaux-Arts de Paris. During her doctoral studies she produced a series of films of “ethnographic fictions”. Between 2014 and 2017 she joined the Sensor ethnography lab and the Film Study Center of Harvard University.

Her films circulate both in places dedicated to art and to cinema. Her exhibitions and collective screenings include: “Disappearing operations” in the Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, the Beaux-Arts in Paris and the Le Méliès à Montreuil cinemas (2016); “Fiction ethnographique” (solo) in the Museum of Modern Art of Medellín (Colombia, 2016); “Entre Caníbales” at the Galería Instituto de Vision (Colombia, 2016); “Decolonial Atlas” at the Vincent Price Museum in Los Angeles (2016); “Tropical Uncanny” at the Musée Guggenheim in New York (2014); And the 18th Videobrasil Festival of SESC Sao Paulo (Brazil) where he received the Resartis residency Prize. In 2017, he receives the Prix du Conseil Départemental des Hauts de Seine at the Salon de Montrouge in Paris.

Her work is characterized by a mimetic fusion between documentary and fiction. Cinema impregnates his artistic practice that declines in some cases beyond the moving image. Huertas Millán has published in “Permanent collection” of the Museum of Aspen and in “Speke Art Quaterly”, in collaboration with Raimundas Malasauskas.
