Arlene Mejorado is a first-generation, transnational lens-based artist from Los Angeles, California working with analog and digital photography, video, and installations. She experiments with documentary practices, depicting truths that aren’t visibly represented or legible but are experienced viscerally. Mejorado engages in repair work, countering erasure and mending fragments in familial, collective, and diasporic stories and archives. She has been awarded the Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice fellowship and the NALAC master artist grant. Her photography has been published in Vogue, The Atlantic, California Sunday Magazine, Pop-Up Magazine, and LA Times. Mejorado has handled special archival projects with the Human Rights Documentation Initiative, The Latin American Benson Collection, and El Museo de la Palabra y la Imagen in San Salvador, El Salvador. She holds a B.A. in Latin American Studies from The University of Texas at Austin and is completing her M.F.A. in Visual Arts at The University of California in San Diego.
