COURTESY OF THE ARTIST AND SIMON PRESTON GALLERY, NEW YORK
Daniel Joseph Martinez lives and works in the Crenshaw district in South Los Angeles. His work has been exhibited in the United States and internationally since 1978. His artistic practice is known for its complex artistic vocabulary, which is likely to include text, sculpture, installations, painting, video and photography. He endeavors to engage history and contemporary geopolitical realities to expose their complex dynamics and to destabilize and reorder them in ways that can be alternately (or simultaneously) poetic, humorous, or revelatory. In 2006 he represented the United States at the Cairo Biennial. He participated in the groundbreaking 1993 Whitney Biennial and again in the 2008 Whitney Biennial, the 2004 San Juan Triennial, the 2005 Lima Biennial, the 2007 Moscow Biennial, and the 1993 Venice Biennale. He also participated in the 2008 California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art. In 2010 his work will be presented in a group exhibition in Madrid, at the Instituto Cervantes. He is represented by the Simon Preston Gallery in New York.
