Josefina Muñoz, a multi-disciplinary artist from Santiago, Chile, will give the School of Art Visiting Artist Program lecture at noon on Wednesday, February 1, at the University Galleries.
All School of Art Visiting Artist Program lectures are free and open to the public.
Muñoz often works nomadically, creating pieces in and about environments she encounters. Her seemingly disparate projects focusing on space, architecture, and place come together in an overarching impulse to answer questions of global concern. Muñoz shows her work, lectures, and develops independent research internationally.
Her most recent projects involve extreme field investigation, including living with the Turkana nomads in Africa and experiencing complete isolation on an uninhabited island. Since 2007 Muñoz has been commissioned to work on diverse public art projects.
Muñoz earned an MFA in glass from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2013, and a BFA with honors from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in 2006. To learn more, visit www.josefinamunoz.net.
