OCTOBER 10, 2007 – NOVEMBER 3, 2007
Alejandra von Hartz Gallery is pleased to open its 2007-2008 season with an exhibition of Fabián Burgos‘ new works.
In this new series FB compounds his admiration for the legacy of artists like Soto, Max Bill, Palermo, Silva, Le Parc and, Raul de Keyser amongst others, with “subjective images and impressions that arise from the quotidian”, emptying them of their original meaning in order to transport them to another context which is not their own, namely the World of Art.
Fabián Burgos was born in 1962 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he lives and works. In 1987 he studied with Luis Felipe Noé and later was awarded a Kuitca scholarship.
Amongst his solo shows:
2000 Annina Nosei Gallery. New York, USA.
2003 MC5 Miscelánea, Centro Cultural Recoleta. Buenos Aires, Argentina
