Oscar Muñoz: Invisibilia is the first mid-career survey of Columbian artist Oscar Muñoz’s work in the United States. Although he has had large-scale retrospectives throughout Europe and Latin America, this exhibition will introduce US audiences to a broad scope of his evolving practice. Beginning with his early, stark charcoal drawings from the late 1970s and early 1980s, whose approach to light and shade continued to impact his aesthetic in later photographic and video works, the exhibition will include approximately 50 exemplary works from his most evocative series created during the late 1980s, 1990s and 2000s to the present day, including site-specific work. In addition, at each venue, Muñoz will recreate local iterations of his Lugar a dudas (Room for Doubt) workshops, which he founded in Cali in 2006 as a hub for young artists to participate in public dialogue and debate about art and politics. Opening at Phoenix Art Museum...in the fall of 2020, Invisibilia will be accompanied by the first comprehensive bilingual catalogue of his production, with contributions by leading scholars in the field.
Oscar Muñoz: Invisibilia is co-organized by Phoenix Art Museum and the Blanton Museum of Art, where it will travel to in 2022. Its Phoenix premiere is made possible through the generosity of The Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation, Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation, The Joan Cremin Exhibition Endowment, and Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino, with additional support from the Museum’s Circles of Support and Museum Members."
