Sebastián GORDÍN

Gordín is one of the central artistic figures that rose to prominence in the post- dictatorship Argentina of the late 1990s. Rejecting the growing intellectual- isation of Argentine artistic practice, Gordín’s work evades overtly political and conceptual tendencies to be characterised by playful and experimental exploration of life and aesthetics often through the use of traditional or everyday materials, such as marquetry, maquettes and architectural miniatures.

 

Gordín has exhibited widely internationally, including ICI Instituto de Cooperación Iberoamericana; Buenos Aires; Espacio Fundación Telefónica;  the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA) and his work was featured in the 29th Bienal de Pontevedra, Spain in 2006.

 

His works is in museum collections such as MALBA, Argentina, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León, Spain, Frac des Pays de la Loire, France, Blanton Museum, Texas, MAR – Museu de Arte do Rio, Brazil.
