ABOUT THE ARTIST

Beatriz Cortez is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice explores multiple temporalities beyond the human experience, and concepts of simultaneity, multiplicities, the untimely, and speculative imaginaries of the future.

She has exhibited at the Craft Contemporary Museum, Los Angeles; Clockshop, Los Angeles; Vincent Price Art Museum, Los Angeles; Monte Vista Projects, Los Angeles; Centro Cultural de España de El Salvador; and Museo Municipal Tecleño (MUTE), El Salvador; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; BANK/MABSOCIETY, Shanghai, China; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Centro Cultural Metropolitano, Quito, Ecuador; and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions.

Cortez is the recipient of the Artadia Los Angeles Award, the inaugural Frieze LIFEWTR Sculpture Prize (2019), the Emergency Grant from the Foundation of Contemporary Arts, the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Emerging Artist Grant, the Artist Community Engagement Grant, and the California Community Foundation Fellowship for Visual Artists.

ABOUT IANA QUESNELL

Iana Quesnell challenges concepts of occupying space as they relate to identity and movement. Through observations of daily life, Quesnell reveals how the physical spaces we inhabit force individuals to behave and move in specific premeditated ways. These actions are a part of a larger set of systemic structures present in today’s society; implemented through architecture, division of private and public space, and notions of societal norms. Quesnell exposes these systems in order to gain awareness and analyze their inner workings.
