Oscar Santillán

Presented at 18th Street Arts Center
Presented at LACMA

Oscar Santillán’s work insinuates the existence of a territory where what is possible can be trespassed; where the invisible can be truthfully materialized, and where history is a speculative matter. It can be understood as an investigation of the margins of reality.

His work has been displayed at Witte de With (NL), LACMA (US), MUAC (MX), Irish Museum of Modern Art (IE), IV Poligraphic Triennial (PR), Museo de Arte ‘Carrillo Gil’ (MX), STUK (BE), Fundación ODEON (CO), SECCA (US), Passerelle Centre d’art contemporain (FR), Nest (NL), Sala Miró Quesada (PE), FLORA ars+natura (CO), Bonnefanten Museum (NL), XIII Bienal de Cuenca (EC), Kröller-Müller Museum (NL), Bienal de Arte Paíz (GT), Voorlinden Museum (NL), among other venues. Santillán received a Sculpture MFA from VCU (US), and attended residencies at Delfina Foundation (UK), Jan van Eyck (NL), Skowhegan (US), Fondazione Ratti (IT), Davidoff AIR (DO), among others.
