Álvaro Perdices was born in Madrid in 1971. In the last thirty years his career has taken place between Los Angeles and Madrid, where he has been coordinator of exhibitions at the Museo del Prado. In parallel, he has developed educational, curating and exhibition projects for the this institution and others.

After graduating in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, he completed a Master of Arts at California State University and a Master of Fine Arts at UCLA. In 2012 he settled back again in Spain and soon after he presented a large exhibition of his work at the EACC in Castellón, as well as at the Casa sin fin gallery in Cáceres.

On numerous occasions his work has been linked to institutions in the field of museums and education for which he has worked, such as public schools in Los Angeles or museums in Spain. For these reasons, his professional career also includes teaching in European and North American art schools as well as curating in public and private institutions such as the Museo del Prado, Museo de Teruel, LACPS, or Galería Soledad Lorenzo, among others.

His creative practice also addresses issues of landscape, nature and botany of the periphery. Some of these projects are linked to the Algodonera de Córdoba and the archaeological site of Lancia for which he has developed a cultural landscaping proposal that together with GonArchitects has been the winner and is currently under development and execution.

His work has also been seen individually in spaces such as La Casa Encendida in Madrid, Sin Duda Exhibitions in Los Angeles, the Espacio Mínimo and Marta Cervera galleries in Madrid and the Casa sin fin gallery in Cáceres and Madrid; and collectively at Katherine Brennan Gallery in Los Angeles, The Luggage Store in San Francisco, Instituto Cervantes in Miami, Mahmoud Kalhil Museum in Cairo, Unit 11 in Los Angeles, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CASA in Salamanca, the Marcelino Botín Foundation in Santander, the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, Centro-Centro and Conde Duque (both in Madrid) or the Giardino di Trieste.  His film NEGRO y Luz, has been shown in individual exhibitions recently at the Museo Nacional del Prado, at the Museo de Bellas Artes in Bilbao and at the National Gallery in London.  The exhibition Espejo y Reino / Ornamento y Estado, with the collaboration of estudioHerreros and curated by María Virginia Jaua, was recently seen at CA2M and her latest project El Tercer Patio can still be seen at the Archaeological Museum of Córdoba.

He is currently preparing an exhibition project on the use, change and abuse of the landscape of the Balearic Islands that will be shown at the Es Baluard Museum in Palma de Mallorca in 2023, as well as individual and curated projects at the Palau de la Virreina in Barcelona and Banco de España in Madrid in 2024.
