Victor Arroyo (b. 1977 Mexico) is a video artist working in the cross field between cinema and contemporary art.

His films are informed by various modes of listening and seeing, emerging from long periods of observation and documentation. His practice is situated at the intersection between aesthetics, knowledge production and community-based research, often concerned with the encounters and tensions between lived experiences, knowledge regimes and the politics of display.

His research seeks to examine the specificity and geopolitics of place, exploring the possibilities laying dormant between ethnographic research, academic writing and artistic practice.

His work has been most recently exhibited at Kasseler Dokfest, Sheffield Doc/Fest, RIDM, Canadian Centre for Architecture, Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, BIENALSUR International Biennial of Contemporary Art of the South, Cinemateca do Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro, Japan Media Arts Festival, Cinémathèque Québécoise, Uppsala Kortfilmfestival, Cinemateca de Bogotá, Museo de Bellas Artes Franklin Rawson, Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe, Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino, among others.

A recipient of several awards such as DOXA Documentary Film Festival Award, Mitacs Globalink Research Award and the Programme Documentaire à Risque PRIM.

His most recent research was published by DIO Press (New York, NY).
