Agesta Antonella

Antonella Agesta was born in Temperley, Province of Buenos Aires, in June 1993. She moved to Capital, where she studied Visual Arts specializing in painting at the National University of the Arts. At the same time, she participated in clinics and independent training workshops, such as the Artists Program of the Di Tella University in its 2017 edition. Her work as a painter from the beginning has been crossed by the place of her upbringing, the Buenos Aires suburbs. Antonella in her practice refers from that double place of foreigner-local to the profession of painter. It tells and constructs scenes of surrealist fantasies based in the city of Buenos Aires, putting into play in the images the European training content taught in art schools with the presence of a local spirituality that fulfills a double function: it questions and at the same time embellishes the ideas of tradition. In her work she presents a look at identity and the right to fantasy. Antonella is a teacher at her studio Estudios Baro, where she coordinates and manages a space for workshops, classes and residencies together with Dani Raggio. She worked as an editor at Jennifer, a digital art and current affairs magazine. She and she performed curatorial work. Since 2017 he has participated in both group and individual exhibitions, among them the Young Art Biennial at the Recoleta Cultural Center (2017), the Itaú Visual Arts Award at the Casa Nacional del Bicentenario (2018), We are already leaving at the Universidad Di Tella.
