Cleo Arevalo is a conceptual artist working with multimedia to produce videos, prints, ready-made objects, and installations that examine the globalized oppression of the masses. As a native of the US/Mexico border, she produces pieces that analyze the pre-established meaning of language as perceived through a multicultural filter.
