Praba Pilar is a diasporic Colombian artist keen on disrupting the overwhelmingly passive participation in the contemporary ‘cult of the techno-logic.’ Over the last two decades Pilar has presented cultural productions integrating performance art, street theatre, electronic installations, digital works, video, websites, and writing in museums, galleries, universities, performance festivals, conferences, public streets, and radio airwaves around the world. She is the recipient of numerous awards, and has been written about extensively.

Pilar has a Ph.D. in Performance Studies (with designated emphases in Studies in Performance Practice as Research and in Feminist Theory and Research) from the University of California, Davis. She is currently teaching “Decolonizing Art Practices” at Ndinawe Youth Resource Center in Winnipeg, Manitoba, developing a new body of work on ideology, interpellation and unintelligibility titled Enigma Symbiotica, and covertly embarked on an all-encompassing post-human interdisciplinary journey with artist Anuj Vaidya titled Larval Rock Stars.
