Margarita Paksa

Born in Buenos Aires, she divides her time between this city and Canada. She is senior Sculpture professor and works as an artist in a broad variety of media, changing back and forth with ease between sculpture and painting, drawing, engraving, industrial design, objects, installations, multimedia art, video and writing throughout her work

She has been participating actively in multimedia visual art since 1964, when she joined the lnstituto Di Tella. She was one of the founders of conceptual art and political art in Argentina during the 60`s and has produced numerous videos. She achieved international recognition in 2006 in La scoperta del corpo elettronico. Arte e video negli anni 70, in Turin, Italy, for Tiempo de descuento from 1978, considered to be the first video art in Argentina. In a teaching capacity, she has had a great influence as the Multimedia chair in graduate and postgraduate courses at the lnstituto Universitario Nacional del Arte (IUNA).

As a researcher at the Conicet, she has directed several investigations into "art in the public arena" and "net.art". In 2004, the Fundación Espigas edited her book Proyectos sobre el discurso de mi in two languages, about the projects presented at the lnstituto Di Tella during the 60`s. That same year, she was awarded the John Simon Guggenheim Scholarship to further develop her research. She has given conferences and seminars at different congresses and roundtables in this country and abroad, such as those held at the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, the Facultad de Bellas Artes de La Plata and the Facultad de San Carlos, in Valencia, Spain. She has also exhibited and given courses in Canada, including at the Art Faculty of Ottawa, New Brunswick and Concordia in Montreal.

Paksa has published numerous essays, in particular a study of the Rorschach plates, as well as on Marcel Duchamp and Macedonio Fernández. She has been writing texts on art and technology since 1996, a subject which she has developed extensively throughout her multimedia artistic output. She has also taken part as a member of the jury to select teaching staff in some of the leading art faculties in Argentina, such as Tucumán, Córdoba and Rosario. She was also curator at the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, for Ejercicios de Ricardo Carreira.

Her works are owned by major museums and private national and international collections. Her most recent distinctions include the Primer Premio de Pintura from the Fundación Fortabat, Premio Multimedia from the Faena Art District, the Guggenheim Scholarship in 2004 and the Installation Prize at the Fifth International Art Biennale in Cairo, Egypt, 1994. Currently, Paksa is carrying out international work with the Henrique Faria Fine Art Gallery at exhibitions such as Volta 5, ArteBA, Pinta New York, ARCO Madrid and Art Brussels, in 2009, and in 2010, Pinta London, New conceptulisms, and the recent show in New York, which received rave reviews from the critics. In 2011 she will be present at ARCO Madrid with a solo project.

She is now writing a book on minimalism to be edited by the Museo de Bellas Artes Neuquén and an anthology of her work to be launched at the retrospective exhibition dedicated to her by the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires: Margarita Paksa.
