Beatriz Santiago Muñoz

Beatriz Santiago Muñoz is an artist whose expanded moving-image work is entangled with Boalian theater, experimental ethnography, and feminist thought. She tends to work with non-actors, and incorporate improvisation into her process. Her recent work is on the sensorial unconscious of anti-colonial movements, and on everyday poetic work in the Caribbean. Recent solo exhibitions include: Gosila at Der Tank, Basel; Rodarán Cabezas at Espacio Odeón, Bogotá; That which identifies them, like the eye of the cyclops at Western Front; A Universe of Fragile Mirrors at the Pérez Art Museum Miami; and Song, Strategy, Sign at the New Museum. Recent group exhibitions include: Whitney Biennial 2017, New York; Prospect.4, New Orleans; 8th Contour Biennale, Mechelen; and Ce qui ne sert pas s’oublie, CAPC-Bordeaux. She has received the Herb Alpert Arts Award, was a 2016 USA Ford Fellow and received a 2015 Creative Capital Award for a film-in-progress titled “Verano de Mujeres.”
