Alejandro Cesarco earned a BA in economics from the Universidad Católica del Uruguay Dámaso Antonio Larrañaga in 1998 and then he completed an MA in studio art through a program run jointly by New York University and the International Center of Photography in 2000. He works in close dialogue with the histories of Conceptual Art and addresses, through different media and strategies, his interest in repetition, narrative and the practices of reading and translation. In addition to his studio practice, the Uruguayan-born artist has curated several exhibitions and runs Art Resources Transfer (A.R.T.), a nonprofit organization founded in 1987 to document conversations between artists. His works have been shown in the U.S., Latin America and Europe.
