"Miguel Ventura (San Antonio, Texas, 1954) is a multidisciplinary artist. He studied at Princeton University and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, but lives and works in Mexico City. His paintings from the early 90s were meditations on the breakdown of family, nations, borders and the individual. After that, he began to focus on interdisciplinary practices (drawing, photography, video, installation) in which he explored the implications of language as a device for power. He has exhibited in solo shows in Mexico, Spain, and Holland, and group shows in America and Europe. "
