Beatriz Santiago Muñoz

Beatriz Santiago Muñoz is an artist based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Her work arises out of long periods of observation, research and documentation, in which the camera is present as an object with social implications, and as an instrument mediating aesthetic thought. Her films frequently start out through research into specific social structures or events, which she transforms into collaborative work, performance and moving image. Santiago Muñoz’s recent work has been concerned with the material and physical trace of abstract political ideas, particularly post-military spaces, and the relationship between new landscapes and social forms. Recent exhibitions include: MATRULLA, Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, México City; Under the Same Sun: Art From Latin America Today, Guggenheim Museum of Art; Post-Military Cinema, Transmission Gallery for Glasgow International; The Black Cave, Gasworks, London; Capp Street Project: Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, CCA Wattis; Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, Trinh T Minh-Ha & Gregorio Rocha, TATE Film and VII Bienal do Mercosul. She is also co-founder of Beta-Local, an arts organization in San Juan, Puerto Rico and director of Sessions, a series of intensive seminars anchored in the specific geography, emerging art practices, and social and political conditions of Puerto Rico. Recent exhibitions include: The Black Cave, Gasworks, 2013 in collaboration with the Tate Modern, London; A Universe of Fragile Mirrors, Pérez Art Museum Miami, Miami, FL, 2016; A Universe of Fragile Mirrors, El Museo del Barrio, New York, NY, 2017.
