Join us for a Low-Residency MFA Lecture with Beatriz Santiago Muñoz Wednesday, July 11 at 6pm in the PNCA Mediatheque


Beatriz Santiago Muñoz lives and works in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Santiago Muñoz’s work arises out of long periods of observation 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 as research into specific social structures, individuals or events, which she transforms into performance and moving image. Santiago Muñoz’s recent work has been concerned with post-military land, Haitian poetics, and feminist speculative fictions.

Recent exhibitions include: Song, Strategy, Sign at the New Museum, A Universe of Fragile Mirrors at the Pérez Art Museum of Miami, 2017 Whitney Biennial, MATRULLA, Institute for New Connotative Action, Seattle; Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, México City; Post- Military Cinema, Glasgow International. Her work is included in public and private collections such as the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, Kadist and the Bronx Museum. She is also co-founder of Beta-Local, an arts organization in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She is a 2015 Creative Capital Visual Arts Grantee and a 2016 USA Fellow.
