Santiago Sierra

Santiago Sierra (b. 1966) is a Spanish artist living in Madrid. Using his art to address structures of power, Sierra demonstrates situations of exploitation and marginalisation through a provocative politicisation of minimalism, often hiring underprivileged individuals or groups to undertake menial tasks in exchange for money. His work has most recently been exhibited at Queensland Art Gallery - Gallery of Modern Art, Australia and ARTIUM Centro - Museo de Art Contemporáneo Vasco, Spain.
