Description - Celia Alvarez Munoz by Roberto Tejada

A conceptual and multimedia artist known for her writing, photography, painting, installation, and public art, Celia Alvarez Munoz has been invited to exhibit and to create site-specific works for more than fifty major U.S. museums and was included in the 1991 Whitney Biennial. In her work Munoz draws on family and communal memories to explore her own experiences growing up Catholic and Mexican American on the Texas-Mexico border, as well as larger issues concerning the spaces between languages and cultures and the histories that connect place to community.With more than one hundred color photographs, this book in the landmark A Ver series surveys Munoz's career from her earliest bookmaking project, the Enlightenment series, and such installation pieces as Stories Your Mother Never Told You to her more recent works of public art and digital photography. Throughout his in-depth essay, Roberto Tejada illuminates Munoz's feminist perspective, political engagement, and provocative use of ideas and artifacts from two cultures.
