Alejandro Cesarco


Alejandro Cesarco (b. 1975, Montevideo, Uruguay) lives and works in New York. The idea of translation and the notion of narrative, more precisely, the notion of a narrative translated is a recurrent motif in his work. The emphasis in producing the work is not placed primarily on the transmission of information, but rather on how meaning is felt.

Since 1998 he has exhibited, at among other places, murray guy (ny), art in general (ny), kraljevic gallery (zagreb, croatia), centro cultural de españa (montevideo), el museo del barrio (ny), test~site (austin, texas), museo nacional de artes visuales (montevideo), colección engelman-ost, (montevideo), and the bronx museum of the arts (bronx, ny).

He has also curated several exhibitions including "Felix Gonzalez-Torres" at the Museo Nacional de Artes Visuales in Montevideo, "chapter v," at Art Resources Transfer in NYC, and "visitas," a project at the Centro Cultural Rojas in Buenos Aires, Argentina, that built a public bibliographical archive according to selections made by invited participants. In 2007 he co-curated "conversas" a project for the 6th bienal do mercosul, Porto Alegre, Brazil. He is editor of an ongoing series of conversation based books titled "between artists." and
