Oscar Muñoz: Evolution from Traditional to Contemporary Artist
From 03 June 2014 to 21 September 2014
The journey of an experimental legend
From now until September 21, 2014 the work of Colombian artist Óscar Muñoz will be displayed during an exhibit called 'Protographs.' Born in 1951, Muñoz is considered to be one of Colombia's most important contemporary artists.
For more than four decades, he has crafted his oeuvre around the themes of memory, loss and the precariousness of life. He achieve this through photography, sculpture, drawings, engravings, video installations and 3D installations. In the 'Protographs' exhibit Muñoz's most important series of work have been curated and categorized into themes. These themes include the instability of images, the role of the image in memory, an exploration of artistic media beyond paper, and images in flux.
Having begun his artist career in the '70s, Muñoz has been active during a period of intense experimentation and cross-disciplinarity. More and more, contemporary art was being and continues to be inspired by literature, films and other forms of culture. The art of Óscar Muñoz provides a perfect example of the transition from traditional visual art to inventive and interactive contemporary art.
