Graciela Sacco Rosário, Argentina, 1956-2017

One of the main names of contemporary Argentine production, artist Graciela Sacco (Rosario, Argentina, 1956) is recognized for works developed with innovative techniques of photosensitive printing, which allow for the recording of images in unusual media. Influenced by the Latin American conceptualism of the 1960s, among them the Tucumán Arde collective, her production has a strong political implication. The relationship between memory and photography is another theme strongly explored by the artist. In videos, installations and urban interventions, in addition to the heliographies in different materials, she examines the tensions between art and society and deals with issues such as displacements, migrations, exiles and the contemporary diaspora.


Graciela has represented Argentina in various international biennials, such as: Venice (2001), São Paulo (1996), Havana (1997 and 2000), Mercosul (1997), Shanghai (2004) e Ushuaia (2009). She has also participated in solo and collective exhibits in countries such as England, Germany, France, Israel, The United States, Brazil, Colombia and Peru.


Her work is present in important international collections such as: MAMBA (Museu de Arte Moderna de Buenos Aires), Argentina; MACRO (Museu de Arte Contemporáneo de Rosario), Argentina; Bronx Museum (New York, USA); MFAH (The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston), USA; Museum of Art of Fort Lauderdale, USA; the Microsoft collection, Washington, USA; Essex University, Colchester, England.
