About the Artist

Andrew Roberts (b. 1995, Tijuana) lives and works in Mexico City. His research-based practice explores the historical parallel development of war technology and the entertainment industry, analyzing the role of images as operational weapons within colonial, racial and extractive mechanisms and their poetic, political, and aesthetic ramifications in the production of capital and death. His work employs elements from video games and the popular genres of cinema, taking on the form of multimedia narrative and speculative fiction, materialized across space through digital animations and immersive installations in the company of objects, actions, and writing.

Significant solo exhibitions include Necromancer, House of Chappaz, Barcelona and Valencia (2022); Best Practice, San Diego (2022); Pequod Co., Mexico City (2020); and the CECUT, Tijuana (2017). His work has been shown amongst others at the Whitney Biennial 2022: Quiet As It’s Kept, New York City (2022); 7th Athens Biennale: Eclipse, Athens (2021); the Museo Jumex, Mexico City (2021); kurimanzutto, Mexico City (2021); the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, San Diego (2018); the Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco, Mexico City (2018); and the San Diego Art Institute (2017). Collaborative two-person exhibitions include Delaplane, San Francisco (2021); and Salón Silicón, Mexico City (2021). Roberts is an active member of Deslave, a curatorial and artistic duo.
