Alejandro Cesarco

b. 1975, Montevideo | lives and works in New York

Alejandro Cesarco’s work is influenced by literature and literary theory, and by the fragile relationships that exist between imagery, language, and meaning. 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. Index (2000) is the first of a series of indices for imaginary books. The alphabetical list invites the reader to mentally write a text in reverse, forging links between references to European, Latin American, and North American architecture, art, film, literature, music, and philosophy.
