Fabián Marcaccio

Born, 1963 in New York, USA

From the archived Documenta 11 website: www.documenta12.de//archiv/d11/data/english/index.html

“On the one hand, Fabiàn Marcaccio engages the material aspects of painting from the unusual perspective of the mechanical reproduction of images. On the other hand, he invests this analytic dimension with theoretical resonance. After moving from Argentina to New York in the late 1980s, Marcaccio’s work grew richer through exposure to the North American abstract tradition, the premises of which he attempted to dismantle with an acid irony. Towards the mid-1990s, Marcaccio began experimenting actively with new techniques of printing and image reproduction.”
