Beatriz Cortez Glacial Pothole

Beatriz Cortez (b. 1970, San Salvador, El Salvador; lives and works in Los Angeles) received an MFA in Art from the California Institute of the Arts and a Ph.D. in Literature and Cultural Studies from Arizona State University. 

“Her work explores simultaneity, life in different temporalities and different versions of modernity, memory, and loss in the aftermath of war and the experience of immigration, and imaginaries of the future.” —18th Street Arts Center 

She has had exhibitions at the Craft Contemporary Museum; Clockshop; The Hammer, Los Angeles, CA; Centro Cultural de España de El Salvador; Museo Municipal Tecleño (MUTE), El Salvador; and The Whitney, New York, NY, among others.
