José Guadalupe Garza was born along the US/Mexico border. He is a conceptual artist and educator working across various mediums. His practice examines ways in which Latinx histories and identities are continually constructed and reconstructed in American popular culture. Garza borrows from films, music, literary works, and the science fiction genre to create reimagined narratives that include appropriated images, film scenes, recorded music, reenactments, improvisation and ready-made objects. Currently, he is the Museum Educator at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis and a founding member of Monaco.
