Born in Mexico City, Mexico, in 1936
Lives and works in Mexico City and New York.
Towards the end of the 70s, Serrano began her artistic studies at the Dolores de la Barra Art Workshop, under the teaching of Javier Arévalo, Robin Bond and José Feher. Since then, her artistic activities have been incessant, and encompass different disciplines such as painting, found object, sculpture, video, and installation.
Serrano’s work is loaded with great personal political undertones; depicting at the same time sexism and gender violence. The artist performs metaphors around the body, the domestic, the femininity and how it can be oppressing. Serrano does so by using different materials, ranging from steel to ceramics and fabrics.
Serrano has had numerous solo shows in museums and galleries such as Museo Amparo, Puebla; Museo Marco de Monterrey, Monterrey; Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, Mexico City; Laboratorio de Arte Alameda, Mexico City; Michael Kohler Arts Center Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and Museo de Arte Moderno, Buenos Aires. She has also participated in group exhibitions at El Museo del Barrio, New York; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, and Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid.
