As part of Culture In Action: Prince Claus Awards Week, the Stedelijk Museum is proud to welcome 2013 Prince Claus Laureate Oscar Muñoz for his artist talk in the stedelijk|forum -series of the Public Program. Muñoz is a ground-breaking Colombian visual artist whose thought-provoking works have received international praise. Following his lecture, there will be a moderated Q&A with Tate Modern curator and member of the Prince Claus Awards Committee José Roca.

More information about the speakers:

In his poetic artworks, Oscar Muñoz (Popayán) explores the fragile and ephemeral nature of identity, memory and perception. Often working with human images, he expands the boundaries of the visual arts by conveying complicated ideas in deceptively simple ways. More information on Oscar Muñoz.

José Roca (Colombia) is the Estrellita B. Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art at Tate Modern, London, and Artistic Director of FLORA ars+natura in Bogotá. He is on the curatorial committee of Independent Curators International, New York, and the Fundação Iberé Camargo, Porto Alegre. He is also a member of the Prince Claus Awards Committee.
