Visiting Artist Lecture: Beatriz Santiago Muñoz
Beatriz Santiago Muñoz
February, 17 2016 7PM
Starr Foundation Hall, Room UL102. University Center 63 Fifth Ave. New York, NY.
Co-sponsored by the Culture and Media Department at Eugene Lang College and The School of Media Studies at The New School, in collaboration with Flaherty NYC. Beatriz Santiago Muñoz is an artist based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Her work draws from experiments in film, ethnography, and theater, and develops out of periods of observation and documentation in which the camera is present as an object with social implications and as an instrument mediating aesthetic thought. Subjects include an artist accused of terrorism, anarchist communities, megafactories, and the life of a concrete poet/union leader. Her work has been exhibited recently at the Mercosul Biennial, Brazil; San Juan Triennial Poligráfica; Glasgow International; and Tate Modern in London.
