Beatriz González

(Bucaramanga, Colombia, 1938) Painter, sculptor, and graphic artist. She is considered one of the most influential figures of the Colombian art scene due to her incisive and lucid stance as a chronicler of her country's recent history. In addition to her extensive artistic career, González developed an important curatorial and pedagogical work from her role as director of the Education Department of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Bogotá, during the 1970s. Similarly, through her participation in exhibitions and research projects in national institutions, she worked toward conceiving museums and exhibitions as spaces for the transmission of knowledge, where the public was engaged as an active part in a direct and frank dialogue. These qualities are also present in her personal work, in which she has linked popular narratives and formal painting by appropriating photographs that appear in the press, with an emphasis on topics such as political violence and mourning, from the 1960s until today.
