Artist Bio: Minvera Cuevas

Minvera Cuevas is a social activist from Mexico City whose work combines artistic practice with creative politics. Cuevas gained international acclaim for creating Mejor Vida Corp. (Better Life Corporation) in 1998. As the sole representative for this corporation, Cuevas provides services that often disrupt the flow of capitalism. Although all of MVC’s products are free and available at http://www.irational.org/mvc, it is not philanthropic; rather the goal of this and other projects by Cuevas is to create a human interface through social exchange. Cuevas has exhibited at a number of international venues including Lisson Gallery, The Biennale of Sydney, Palais de Tokyo, Grizedale, DAAD Gallery, and Musee d’Art Monderne de la Villa de Paris.
