Alejandro Corujeira

Birth placeBuenos Aires, Argentina Birth date1961

After finishing his studies at the School of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires and showing his initial work in the Latin American context, he traveled to Madrid in 1991, a city in which he established his habitual residence until today. A leisurely insertion in the Spanish artistic circuit gave way to a gradual recognition during the 1990s through the May Moré Gallery, to become consolidated as a unique creator of postmodern abstraction since 2002, the year in which he began to be represented by the Marlborough Gallery, to which he remained linked for almost a decade. A constant search and renewal of records and codes allowed him to complete his academic training through scholarships and residences, in places like the Academy of Spain in Rome (1997), with the Yadoo Scholarship in Saratoga Springs, New York (2002), or at the Joseph Albers Foundation of Bethany, in Connecticut, United States (2004).

 

In addition to participating in numerous collective exhibitions, his work has been seen individually in centers and galleries in various countries of America, such as the Juan Martín Gallery, Mexico (1989 and 1991), in the Miami Elite Fine Art galleries, Coral Gables (1990-2001) and Alejandra von Hartz (2013), at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Panama (1993), at the Museum of Contemporary Art Sofía Ímber of Caracas (1996) or, more recently, at the Marlborough Gallery of New York (2009). In Spain important individual exhibitions have marked his artistic career, such as those held in La Caja Negra, Madrid (2001), in Space One of the Reina Sofía National Museum of Art (2002), in IVAM, Valencia (2006), in the Marlborough Gallery in Madrid (2003, 2005, 2006 and 2008), at the Barjola Museum, Gijón (2010), or at the Casa de Iberoamérica, Cádiz (2014). In recent years his paintings have been exhibited at ARCO Madrid by the Dan Gallery in São Paulo. Among the awards obtained, the Todisa Prize (2002) and the Caja Extremadura Open Work (2011) deserve mention. His works are part of collections of institutions and museums of international scope, such as the Patricia Phelps collection of Cisneros of New York, the Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, Texas, the Bank of Spain Collection or the funds of the National Center Museum of Reina Sofía Art
