Beatriz Santiago Muñoz: Safehouse

@ SAIC Sullivan Galleries

33 S State St, 7th floor, Chicago, IL 60603

Opening Friday, September 28th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Saturday, December 8th

This exhibition presents a new body of work by Beatriz Santiago Muñoz (SAIC MFA 1997), whose projects often arise 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. “Safehouse” presents film, video, and objects concerning the sensorial unconscious of the Puerto Rican anti-colonial movement which was based, in part, in Chicago. The works are informed by the ideas, images and objects of the movement, it experiments and expands from these materials in order to sensorially reformulate this history.

Reception is presented in conjunction with EXPO Chicago’s “After Hours”

Exhibition on view August 27 – December 8
Free and open to the public, Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 6pm
