As well as she has given lectures at many international Universities as the Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna (Bologna, Italy), the National Academy of Arts of Sofia (Sofia, Bulgaria), the Faculty of Creative Arts, UWE (Bristol, UK)… and has participated at different International Artist’s Residency Programmes, eg: the Art and Creation Centre of Lâzarea (Romaia, 2008 and 2010), the Vyom Art Centre in Jaipur (India, 2009), the Sixth Kepes Symposium in Nature Art in Noszvay (Hungary, 2010), the Sandarbh Ineternational Residency in Partapur (India, 2011), the Slow Film Festival.

Bibiana is also an active practitioner and her work deals with the graphic and plastic analysis of the musical works of musicians as J.S. Bach, F. Chopin, I. Albeniz and specially John Cage. As an example, she does not only look at Cage’s conventional dodecatonic music and performance scores but also at his mesostics which in the different sizes, letterpresses and body of the letters of his music poems involve melodic, harmonic and timbric variations and subtleties. Additionally, she develops multimedia projects with socially compromised content in which she turns the spectator/viewer into actor/participant of the projects themselves. On the other hand, her work ‘anatomical musical plates’ turns out to be a manifesto defending the scientific-technical drawing in a purest descriptive stile of human anatomy. It is also a plea in favour to electrography and copy-art. Furthermore, it is a visual metaphor about musicality of the joints of the human body and their visual representation. In addition, this piece debates the absurd irony of the subject of the drawings and mastery of execution, the sarcasm with which the art market is treated by claiming a purchasing catalogue in favour of  the democratization of art and finally the unavoidable complicity when is absorbed by the same art trade.

Solo and selected group exhibitions include: The Rape of Europe, Porto Alegre (Brazil, 2013); 1st International Changzhou China Art Workshop And Festival, Changzhou (China, 2013); E-corea International Art Biennale, Jeollabuk-do (Korea, 2012); Made in Taipei.
