Marcelo Brodsky


Marcelo Brodsky (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1954) is a committed artist and human right activist. He has represented Argentina in several international biennials: Lyon Biennale (2017/18), Photoespaña and Les Rencontres d’Arles (2018), San Pablo (2010), among others. His work is part of important national and international collections such as TATE Collection (UK); The Metropolitan Museum of Art (USA); Museum of Fine Arts Houston (USA); Pinacoteca de São Paulo (Brasil); among others.


Marcelo Brodsky's entire body of work is constituted with relations between the image and the word. Working with a double reading, his colorful works full of marks and handwritten notes in different calligraphic tones and bright colors on the surface of black and white images, offer re-reading of those images, that through those writings interventions, reveal a deeper reflection on those events in history and about  the place of the realities that we inhabit.
