Luis Camnitzer

Luis Camnitzer is an artist, writer, critic, educator, and art theorist. He was at the vanguard of 1960s Conceptualism, working primarily in printmaking, sculpture, and installations. Camnitzer’s artwork explores subjects such as social injustice, repression, and institutional critique. His growing body of writing ranges from cynical manifestos, personal accounts on the history of Latin American conceptual art; texts loosely addressing postcolonialism and multiculturalism (in the 1980s and 1990s); and, most recently, essays and lectures on art education and the concept of “art thinking.”
