Mirta Kupferminc is an Argentine multidisciplinary artist, who lives and works in Buenos Aires. Lecturer and teacher, shows her art internationally in individual shows in galleries and in museums. Exhibiting since 1977, had more than 90 solo shows.
Her work is engraved in a very precise contemporary production line. This line retraces the old-time ability of art to plunge into universal narratives, address social life, and become an agent for history and memory. She represents Argentina at international biennials, and received many awards and recognitions. She was been chosen to build the memorial to honor the victims of the terrorist attack of the Jewish Community building AMIA in Buenos Aires in 1994. Mirta searches into her family history and the Jewish culture, in order to draw out of these sources a number of metaphors that go beyond the peculiarities of individual experience.
Driven by a fully humanistic vision, she celebrates the ability of art to overcome contingencies and projects herself with ecumenical intensity. She is drawn to certain recurrent topics, such as, identity, literature, migrations, human rights and memory.
