Emma Beatrez (b. 1995, New Prague, MN) is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Drawing on a range of influences, her work, which encompasses painting, sculpture, photography, and installation, recontextualizes ritual, found material, and the physicality of the body. Inspired by psychoanalysis and human belief systems, she consistently constructs multi-sensorial artworks that engage viewers to reframe their lived experiences.
Beatrez is also a co-founder and curator at Night Club Gallery in Twin Cities, MN. Since receiving her MFA from Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2020, she has taught courses at a range of undergraduate visual art programs in Minnesota.
