Born in 1985 in Carolina, Puerto Rico and currently based in Oakland, California, Sofía Córdova makes work that considers sci-fi as alternative history, dance music's liberatory dimensions, colonial contamination, climate change and migration, and most recently, revolution - historical and imagined - within the matrix of class, gender, race, late capitalism and its technologies.

She works in performance, video, sound, music, installation, photography, and sometimes taxidermy.

She is also one half of the music duo and experimental sound outfit XUXA SANTAMARIA

Her work has been exhibited and performed internationally at The Whitney Museum of American Art, Tufts University Galleries, SFMOMA, the Arizona State University Museum, The Buffalo Institute for Contemporary Art, The Vincent Price Museum, the Wattis Institute, and YBCA (USA), as well as the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (Puerto Rico), Art Hub (China) and MEWO Kunsthalle (Germany). The same is part of The Whitney’s, The Kadist’s, and Pier 24’s permanent collections. She has participated in residencies at Eyebeam, New York, Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito, Mills College Museum, Oakland, and the ASU Museum in Phoenix and composed and choreographed performances for the SF Arts Commission, Merce Cunningham Trust and Soundwave Biennial. Her work has been featured in Art in America and Aperture magazines. She is a recipient of a Creative Work Fund, a Fundación Ama Amoedo Grant and most recently, of both Artadia and Creative Capital Awards.
