Beatriz Santiago Muñoz will present a Visiting Artist Lecture at Civic Studio on February 1, 2017 (limited seating). The lecture is the third lecture in a series ART AND THE RADICAL. 
Beatriz Santiago Muñoz is an artist based in San Juan, Puerto Rico whose work explores recuperation from trauma, regeneration, affect, and the ways in which our connections to the past are actively produced, maintained, and refuted. The uncontrived, observational style of her art aligns it with the sensibility of documentary film, while also blurring the boundaries between fact and fiction. Despite its ostensible simplicity, Santiago Munoz’s work stems from intensive research, and demonstrates her concern for the role of the camera as a linguistic, political, and conceptual frame through which actions or events are seen. 
Santiago Muñoz visits Grand Rapids and GVSU while preparing for the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and amidst recent projects at Serpentine Gallery in London, Sullivan Galleries in Chicago, El Museo del Barrio and the New Museum in New York, and the Institute for New Connotative Action in Seattle.

ART AND THE RADICAL is the 2016-17 Visiting Artists series featuring creative workers whose projects deepen our understanding of the world by revealing alternate histories, highlighting marginalized communities, and challenging widely held beliefs and traditions. Fall 2016 lectures included Jen Delos Reyes and Nicolas Lampert. Look for details on the upcoming lecture by Jeanne Vaccaro.
