Àngels Ribé (born 1943 in Barcelona) is considered one of the most important Catalan conceptual artists of the 70s. With a strong international presence, she worked alongside such artists as Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Gordon Matta-Clark, Lawrence Weiner, Hannah Wilke, Martha Wilson, Francesc Torres, and Krzysztof Wodiczko, among others.

Ribé moved from Barcelona to Paris in 1966, and in 1969 began creating sculpture and installations, later actions and performances, working primarily with space and the body.

In 1972 Ribé moved to the United States, where she lived and worked for several months in Chicago before settling in New York City. She returned to Barcelona in 1980.


Àngels Ribé En el laberint

Ribe's work, contextualized in the conceptual art of the late 60s and 70s, utilized nontraditional material, which she gradually discarded to concentrate on the ephemeral—light and shadow—and the location of the body in space. In Catalonia, her work is in the collections of the Vila Casas Foundation and the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art MACBA. Her work from 1969 to 1984 was the subject of a retrospective at MACBA in 2011.
