Eliana Cetto


Eliana Cetto’s work is an exploration of identity and power. Cetto reclaims environments to support her queer, fat, Latinx identity through video installations, performance, and alternative processes. She works to decolonize, and utilizes ritual, trends, and “selfie” culture as tools against the patriarchy. Passionate about facilitating classroom environments in digital and analogue photography, Cetto believes that emerging technology and historical processes can foster opportunities for marginalized voices to be heard and claim space.

Her work has been shown regionally in venues such as the de Young Museum, SOMArts, and the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, as well nationally at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, the Gormley Gallery in Baltimore, and the University of Central Florida Gallery. She received her Masters of Fine Arts in Photography from San Jose State University, and her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Painting with an Art History double-major concentrating in Critical Theory and Critique Writing from the University of the Pacific.
