Conditions of Belonging
Noon, September 13, 2019
University Recital Hall
Free admission, everyone welcome

Santiago Mostyn (b. 1981) makes films, installations and performances that test the divide between disparate cultural spheres, employing an intuitive process to engage with a knowledge and history grounded equally in the body and the rational mind. He is based in Sweden but maintains strong ties to Zimbabwe and Trinidad & Tobago, the countries of his upbringing.  

Mostyn co-curated the Moderna Exhibition 2018: With the Future Behind Us, Moderna Museet’s most recent survey of contemporary art in Sweden, and has exhibited widely at venues including the Gothenburg Biennial (2017), Moderna Museet (2016), Kunsthall Stavanger (2014), and Malmö Konsthall (2013). Forthcoming exhibitions in 2019 include Not a Single Story II at Wanås Konst, Survival Kit 10.1 at LCCA Riga, and The Measure of All Things: On the (In)Human at Lunds Konsthall.

Art NOW wishes to thank the Southern Alberta Art Gallery for their collaboration in making Santiago's visit and presentation possible.
