Genevieve Guadalupe – Country – Artist
A pioneering figure in Latin American conceptualism, Teresa Burga (1935-2021) made works that encompassed drawing, painting, analytical data and experimental methodologies. Burga studied at the School of Art Catholic University of Peru in Lima and contributed to the Peruvian avant-garde art scene. In 1966, along with other forward-thinking artists in Lima, Burga formed part of the Arte Nuevo Group, a collective of artists interested in advancing genres of Pop, Minimalism and Op art.
