Tomás Saraceno

Tomás Saraceno was born in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina in 1973. The artist has interests in contemporary, mixed-media, site-specific installations and sculptures.

Saraceno earned both his BA in architecture and MFA from the Universidad Nacional de Buenos Aires. He has exhibited as a solo artist in Seoul, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Copenhagen, and New York, with multiple showings at the Architecture Biennales and Venice Biennale.
