Daniela Rossell was born and raised in Mexico City. She is an interdisciplinary artist and teacher who loves to teach. She works solo and collaboratively in the fields of visual art and writing. Her first book, Ricas y famosas, was described by historian Cuauhtémoc Medina as “among the most significant political works of the art of her country,” and by the New York Times as a “photographic journey through Mexico's twilight zone.” Rossell’s work has been written about in numerous books such as Witness to Her Art, and shown around the world in places such as Greene Naftali, MoMA PS1, J. Paul Getty Museum, Tate Modern, Hammer Museum, SF MoMA and Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, to name a few. She is the 2023 CLACS Visiting Writer and is teaching a special seminar at CLACS in the fall of 2023. More information about the course can be found here.
