In the Solo Duets series, Kunstinstituut Melly presents two solo exhibitions simultaneously. This iteration shows work by Pablo Castañeda and Beatriz Santiago Muñoz.

Pablo Castañeda lives in Mexicali in Baja California, Mexico. For decades, he focused on picturing his immediate environment and surrounding landscape, his friends, and the local arts community. Urban micronarratives, absurd and surrealist scenes, and desert landscapes figure extensively in the artist’s work.

Beatriz Santiago Muñoz is a Puerto Rican-based artist who works primarily with expanded moving images. She develops her films and videos through writing, as well as through chance encounters and structured improvisation with nonactors.
