How does one access the past through the present, and to what end? These questions run through the work of Curtis Santiago. Through drawing, painting, sculpture and video, he instinctively moves between places and media to access his past in order to make sense of the present. This survey presents work developed by the artist in Canada, the United States, Trinidad and South Africa.
