Daniel Bejar is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in New York. His work considers and critiques the representation of history, place, and the self within the structures of power that encompass our physical and digital worlds. Through forms of performance and intervention, Bejar inserts himself and his work into public sites and systems such as Google search engines, Google Maps, protest rallies at Republican National conventions, and a no-fly zone over the Super Bowl in New Jersey to construct new narratives within the public realm.
Bejar is a 2015 recipient of the NYFA Fellowship Award in Interdisciplinary Work, a 2014 recipient of a Franklin Furnace Grant, and 2013 recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Visual Arts Grant. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including The Drawing Center, New York, NY; Brooklyn Museum, NY; Espai-d'art Contemporani de Castello, Spain; El Museo Del Barrio, NY; and the Bronx Museum of the Arts, NY. Bejar received an MFA from the State University of New York at New Paltz, NY, and his BFA from Ringling College of Art and Design, Sarasota, FL.
