Curtis “Talwst” Santiago
Visual Arts Residency
The work of Canadian-Trinidadian artist Curtis “Talwst” Santiago incorporates mixed-media and performance practices. He is currently engaged in an ongoing series of miniature dioramas in reclaimed ring boxes that highlight absent or misinterpreted narratives, revealing the non-linear complexities of history and exploring intercultural relationships. Talwst’s work has been exhibited internationally at The Art Gallery of Mississauga (Ontario), Angell Gallery (Toronto), Studio Museum Harlem (New York) and Galerie White Projects (Paris).
