Alejandro Cesarco
artist / filmmaker

Alejandro Cesarco was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1975. Lives and works in New York.

Cesarco works in dialogue with the histories of Conceptual Art and addresses, through different media and strategies, his interest in repetition, narrative and the practices of reading and translation. His work is influenced by literature and literary theory, and by the fragile relationships that exist between imagery, language, and meaning. In addition to his studio practice, the Uruguayan-born artist has curated several exhibitions and runs Art Resources Transfer (A.R.T.), a nonprofit organization founded in 1987 to document conversations between artists.

His works have been shown in the U.S., Latin America and Europe. Recent solo exhibitions include: Song, The Renaissance Society, Chicago (2017); The Inner Shadow, A Tale of a Tub, Rotterdam (2016); Prescribe the Symptom, Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis (2015); Secondary Revision, Frac Île-de-France/Le Plateau, Paris (2013); A Portrait, a Story, and an Ending, Kunsthalle Zürich (2013); Alejandro Cesarco, Mumok, Vienna (2012); A Common Ground, Uruguayan Pavilion, 54th Venice Biennale (2011); One without the Other, Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City (2011); and Present Memory, Tate Modern, London (2010). Group exhibitions include: Question the Wall Itself, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2016); Under the Same Sun, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2014); Tell It to My Heart: Collected by Julie Ault, Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel (2013); and The Imminence of Poetics, 30th Bienal de São Paulo (2012).

    On the occasion of our exhibition with Weldé at CFAlive Milan L’AMOUR TOUJOURS, we publish a new edition of the previously sold-out book that we produced with Weldé in 2017, FREIHEIT.
