Event Description

Josefina Muñoz is a multi-disciplinary artist from Santiago, Chile. 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 filed investigation, including living with the Turkana nomads in Africa and experiencing complete isolation in an uninhabited island. (2014), Germany (2012), and Scotland (2010). Since 2007 Muñoz has been commissioned to work on diverse public art projects. Muñoz earned a 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.
