César lives and works in Mexico.

César Martínez’s work tackles the diverse economic, social and cultural tensions that Mexico has faced in the last decades. Departing from the logic of provocation, criticism and uncertainty, and displaying humorous appropriations of language’s conceptual ambivalence, César employs multiple supports to tackle complex topics. From installation and sculpture made of edible materials to performance and conceptual objects he explores social malaise in the face of a frustrating system, the defeat of the institutions, globalization and the submission of the Mexican government to U.S. dictates among others subjects.


César has done over 200 performances in International venues, and has also participated in many conferences and round tables. His work is in important art collections such as the Carsten Norman in Germany, Fundació Sorigué in Spain, Colezzione “La Gaia” and Associazione Prometeo in Italy, MUCA UNAM, and various private collections in the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates, among others.


Recently he won a scholarship for graduate studies granted by the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, where he earned recognition for his teaching activities two consecutive years. Since 2002 he has been part of the Mexican National Creator’s System.
