BIOGRAPHY

Cecilia Biagini, Buenos Aires, Argentina, b. 1967

Cecilia Biagini studied painting with Guillermo Kuitca in Buenos Aires and attended university for sociology. Biagini received the Photography Critics Award from the Centro de Arte y Comunicación in 1989 and was a recipient of the Kuitca Scholarship in 1994, and then again in 1997, when her work was short-listed for the Braque Award and the Gunther Award. In 1998 she moved to New York, where she cofounded the exhibition space, The Hogar Collection, in Brooklyn.

Inspired by traditions of Latin American abstraction, Cecilia Biagini makes paintings, mobiles, photograms and reliefs that flow seamlessly from medium to medium. Utilizing a bold sense of color, line, depth and abstraction, the varied works find commonalities in their composition and playfulness. Evoking ideas of physics, the geometric shapes in her work are arranged in a manner suggesting movement and animation. “Conjuring the ludic with pure geometry in space, my work at times refers and alludes to musical and rhythmic waves, pseudo-scientific models/diagrams and is always anchored in the purity of the medium itself.” – Cecilia Biagini

Her work is included in many collections including The University of Texas at San Antonio, San Antonio, TX; The New York Public Library, New York; MACBA Museum collection, Buenos Aires; Ministerio de Educación de la Nación Argentina; and The Department of Homeland Security in Washington D.C. Additionally, her artwork has been exhibited at notable museums including MoMA PS 1, New York City, NY; The Cervantes Institute in Rome, Italy and in Buenos Aires, Argentina; the Recoleta Cultural Center, Buenos Aires, Argentina; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; the PROA Foundation, Buenos Aires, Argentina; and the Museum of Modern Art, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
