Alejandro Puente: A Shifting of the Gaze
Argentinean artist Alejandro Puente was a geometric conceptual artist who began making work in the mid 1960s. He worked in sculpture and 2D arts challenging the mainstream methods of articulating color relations and geometries, and analyzing how systems of information are created. After studying in New York, Puente began making work that referenced various information systems created by native Andean peoples of his country, including their weaving techniques. You can see his work at Henrique Faria until January 9, 2016.
