She has performed at the Queens Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

I will write this biography using 181 words but will not discover this number until I’m done writing it. From this point forward he will speak in third person. Alberto Aguilar is a Chicago born and based aartist. Aguilar’s creative practice often incorporates whatever materials are at hand as well as exchanges with those around him and people that encounter his aart. His work bridges media from painting and sculpture to video, installation, performance, and sound and has been exhibited at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary AArt, the Queens Museum, Crystal Bridges Museum of American AArt, the Nerman Museum of Contemporary AArt, the Minneapolis Institute of AArt and the AArt Institute of Chicago. From 2006-2018 he taught at Harold Washington College where he also coordinated Pedestrian Project, an initiative dedicated to making contemporary aart practices more available to his students. He currently teaches at the School of the AArt Institute of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago. In order to create slight confusion, he has added an extra letter A where ever the word aart appears in this bio.
