In the Studio: Anabella Papa

Americas Society

May 29, 2020


Anabella Papa in conversation with Aimé Iglesias Lukin, Director and Chief Curator of Visual Arts.

Join us live on Instagram from your cell phone, or watch here and on YouTube live or after, for a series of remote visits to artists' studios to bring Americas Society's Visual Arts public programs to your home. Every Wednesday and Friday this month, contemporary artists will dialogue with our Visual Arts department about their work and practice.

About the artist:

Anabella Papa (b. 1979, Bahía Blanca, Buenos Aires, Argentina) considers herself a self-taught artist. She started drawing on a piece of paper her dad gave her at five years old and studied arts at the University of La Plata but didn't complete her degree. In 2005, she began making mostly paintings, and years later she started experimenting with other materials including ceramic, drawing, and performance. Her work deals with themes around daily life, sentiments, and the oneiric world. She is influenced by art brut, freedom of expression, and doing for the sake of doing, without labels.
