Descripción del Artista

Born into the middle of Guatemala's three-decade civil war, Sandra Monterroso (b.1974) has developed a socially and politically motivated practice in which she strives to recover and restore her cultural heritage as a Mayan artist, as well as explore other Latin American indigenous cultural practices. Her work ranges from video and performance to sculpture and drawing, bound together by her committed insistence to foreground Mayan culture and the Q’eqchi’ language. Monterroso is, in Sara Garzón's words, 'one of the major exponents of indigenous contemporary Latin American art'.
