Amor Muñoz

Artist in DF Mexico

I studied Law at UNAM and art at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. Currently my work explores the textile - technology relationship, showing a special interest in the interaction between material forms and social discourse.

My work has been exhibited in museums, galleries and festivals, such as: Laboratorio Arte Alameda (MX); National Arts Centre in Tokyo, Japan; Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York; OK Center, Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria; Electronica Festival 2011 at the Palácio das Artes in Belo Horizonte, Brazil; TRANSITIO MX_04 Festival.
One of the most representative project of my work is Maquila Región 4 (MR4). In 2012, MR4 received an Honorable Mention at the Prix Ars Electronica and the New Face Award at Japan Media Arts Festival in 2013. This project has been published in the New York Times and awarded by Mentes Quo magazine + Discovery Channel (MX).
