Mauro-GiaconiBorn in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1977, Giaconi graduated from the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón in Buenos Aires, in 2001. Focused mainly on drawing, his work explores architecture, precariousness, and the body as territories of conflict. In 2014, he co-founded the projects Obrera Centro and HerratecA in Mexico City—the first is a self-managed space for interdisciplinary artistic experimentation and the latter is a tool library. He received a fellowship from the Centro de Investigaciones Artísticas in Buenos Aires, 2010; he was artist in residence at the Center for Contemporary Art (Omaha, USA), at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Maine, USA) and at the OMI International Art Center (New York, USA). His solo exhibits are: Cae a plomo (desde el fondo del tiempo), BMocA –Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Colorado; Felicidad, Galería Ruth Benzacar, Buenos Aires; Desde el fondo del tiempo, Museo Universitario del Chopo, Mexico City; PARTIR, Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires; Estado fallido, Galería Bendana-Pinel, Paris; and Impermanencia, Galería Arróniz, Mexico City. He has participated in collective exhibits in Sao Paolo, Rio de Janeiro, Montreal, Buenos Aires, Boston, Paris, Miami, and Mexico City. He has lived in Mexico City since 2011. Giaconi participated as a guest commentator for the presentation of Ontiveros’s project.
