Mauro Giaconi was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1977. In 2001 he graduated from the National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredón with the title of National Professor of Painting. Since then his work is developed in the field of drawing, expanding towards sculpture, installation and video; media from which, based on personal or political experiences, addresses issues such as architecture, borders, oppression and chaos. His work has been exhibited in several countries of America and Europe; participated in artistic residences such as Skowhegan and Art Omi, among others; and his work was rewarded on several occasions. Currently you can see his exhibitions: ¨Impermanencia¨ at Galería Arróniz, Mexico City; "Tira Líneas" at the British Cultural Center, Lima, Peru; "Draw" at the Silencio Club, Paris; and "From the Time Fund" at the Museo Universitario del Chopo, Mexico City. Dese the year 2011 is in Mexico City where he founded in 2014 Obrera Centro, self-managed and independent art space dedicated to artistic experimentation.
Obrera Centro is a space that seeks to generate and disseminate cultural projects from the meeting, presentation and feedback of production processes. With the conviction that it is in the instance of encounter between different disciplines where there is the most fertile creative dialogue, our search is to interweave visual arts, music, design, theater, education, cinema and gastronomy, looking for the edges between these disciplines to be diluted , and give way to renovating and constructive experiences. Obrera Centro has dedicated itself to building a community of friends, in which they are the ones who fill the project with content and proposals. Obrera Centro works as a hostel for projects, among them are: the Herrateca, the just tool, mantra, artists' assembly, slow-dance, open rehearsal, cocktail parties, ping pong tournaments, project lodge, among others.
