Individual exhibition, through May 22, 2014 – in the framework of the Glasgow International Festival
Puerto Rican Beatriz Santiago Muñoz’s work uses specific existing situations and draws out relationships present within them; between people, histories, material conditions, and the non-human environment.
Post-Military Cinema is a moving image project about the ideology embedded in the physical landscape of a decommissioned US Navy Base in the town of Ceiba, Puerto Rico. The camera treats the entire base as the cinematic apparatus, looking for all elements in the apparent environment; the source of light, the image produced by the play of light and object, the frame, movement, the audience and the screen.
About the festival: This innovative model of a contemporary art Festival includes a programme comprised of curated commissions and projects by new Director for 2014, Sarah McCrory as well as exhibitions and events at over 40 spaces across the city of Glasgow.
Showcasing work by more than 80 of the best local and international artists, the Festival aims to highlight artists whose practices engage in essential and critical contemporary art discourse.
More than 90% of the work included in the 18-day Festival will be new or previously unseen in the UK and will be presented in a range of media and disciplines such as installation, sculpture, performance, film, stand-up comedy, collage, ceramics, photography and painting.
Now in its sixth year, Glasgow International has a legacy of producing some of the most exciting new contemporary art commissions, recognising emerging talent and tracing the careers of artists over multiple editions. The 2014 Festival will further showcase Glasgow as one of the world’s most important centres for the production and display of contemporary visual art
Transmission Gallery, 28 King Street, Glasgow, UK.
Exhibition on view Monday to Sunday, between 11am – 5pm, from April 4 through May 22, 2014.
