Elisa Arteta is a dancer, choreographer and one of the co-directors of the Huarte Contemporary Art Centre. She studies the body inside and out: proprioception, the relationship between the mind and the body, how political ideologies run through our bodies and how we can resist this normativity through movement.
Her work has been on show in venues such as the Study Centre of the Reina Sofía Museum, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Akademie Der Künste in Berlin. She has been granted various artistic residencies, such as La Casa Encendida and CA2M, Incheon Art Platform (South Korea), Parkinprogress (Nottingham), MAM (Marrakesh), Djerassi (California) and Leal.lav (Tenerife). Since 2010 she has been co-director of the INMEDIACIONES festival, and has been co-director of Huarte Contemporary Art Centre since 2016.
