Raquel Victoria was born in Palma de Mallorca (1998). From a very young age she developed a great interest in the visual and musical arts. She began her artistic career at the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts (Palma) although previously she had already received painting and drawing classes from the age of 5 to 12. While she was studying at the Academy of Fine Arts, she first studied elementary piano through private lessons with the pianist Inés Bennasar. She was part of the choir "Els vermellets de la Seu" of the Sant Josep Obrer music school (Palma, 2010-2013) where she also studied musical language. During her time at the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts, she had the first opportunity to be part of two group exhibitions. She completed the baccalaureate of humanities studying subjects such as history of music, dance and art, as well as artistic drawing. At the age of 17, she decided to move to the city of Granada to complete a degree in Fine Arts at the Alonso Cano Faculty of Fine Arts (University of Granada). It is at this stage that she develops her artistic production and research to this day, in addition to discovering the field of curatorial and cultural management. During her time in the degree she received an Ícaro scholarship in the vice-dean of the Alonso Cano Faculty of Fine Arts, carrying out and working on cultural projects such as EDI-TABLES 2020, FACBA 20, Mikeli Fest, among others. Her final degree project "Al-Liquindoi" is based on a cultural mediation project. The project received the Aid Ayuda a la Producción, Comisariado y Mediación Artística Alumni UGR del Programa 46 del Plan Propio de Investigación y Transferencia (University of Granada).
Since last year, she has been part of the curatorial research office "Co2: Comisariado contracultural" at the Madraza Centro de Cultura Contemporánea. Within the group, he is part of the curatorship and management of the "International Festival Noise is (not) data" and "Beats to curate".
She is currently doing the Master in Production and research in art at the University of Granada, where she studies and investigates her TFM project focused on the creation of a cultural space for the city of Granada.
Combined with her studies, Raquel Victoria works in independent curators of exhibitions such as “Kiero ser famosa” by Marta Silgado (Granada, 2019) or “Copy Paste” by Marta Ruiz Anguera and Jaime González Palencia at the Krekovik Museum of the Consell de Mallorca (Palma , 2020).
