Spanning forty years, Breaking the Binding is the first career retrospective of Conceptual artist Celia Álvarez Muñoz (b. 1937, El Paso, TX). Featuring over thirty-five artworks – including large-scale immersive installations, photographic series, and book projects – this major exhibition highlights the artist’s playful, witty style, often characterized by her use of bilingual puns and mistranslations in both text and image. Muñoz often draws inspiration from her lived experience as a resident of the United States-Mexico borderlands.

This exhibition is curated by Dr. Kate Green, Chief Curator & Nancy E. Meinig Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at Philbrook Museum of Art, and Isabel Casso, Assistant Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.
