Best known for his large-scale baroque and polemically charged installations, Pepón Osorio uses the exhibition space as an intermediary between the social architecture of communities and the mainstream art world. These installations are based on the experiences of communities he works with across the globe. By presenting installations in unconventional places, Pepón also explores how the meaning of art depends on its location. His work has been included in multiple international exhibitions and received numerous distinctions.
