Alicia Barney Caldas is a Colombian artist born in Cali on November 28, 1952. In 1974 she obtained a bachelor of fine arts degree from the College of New Rochelle and a master of fine arts degree from the Pratt Institute in New York. Her work has an important place in the history of Colombian art, as during the eighties she was a pioneer in addressing environmental issues with the procedures of conceptualism, land art, and ecological art. Barney is a transgressive artist who, despite the questioning and lack of recognition, continued to develop her work, responding to her personal conviction.
