Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Daniel Bejar

Daniel Bejar is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in New York. His work considers and critiques the representation of history, place, and the self within the structures of power that encompass our physical and digital worlds.

Through forms of performance and intervention, Bejar inserts himself and his work into public sites and systems (such as Google search engines, Google Maps, protest rallies at Republican National conventions, and a no-fly zone over the Super Bowl in New Jersey) to construct new narratives within the public realm.

He is also a 2014 recipient of a Franklin Furnace Grant, and 2013 recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Visual Arts Grant.
