Eduardo Abaroa is a Mexico City-based artist who examines aspects of impermanence, history, and the socio-political fabric of North American society. Through frequent re-imagining of iconic works and powerful cultural symbols, he seeks to dismantle notions of monumentality and modernity. Abaroa earned his BFA from the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas (UNAM) and his MFA from California Institute of the Arts. His work is represented by Kurimanzutto Gallery in Mexico City and has been exhibited extensively in Mexico, the U.S.A. and Europe. He has participated in artists’ residences and symposia internationally and directed the IX International Symposium on Contemporary Art Theory held in Mexico City. Abaroa is a founding member of SOMA. He has contributed texts for catalogs for many artists vital to the Mexican context, as well as columns and reviews for several journals and publications.
