Marta Chilindron (born 1951, Buenos Aires) lives in New York.

Marta Chilindron explores perspective, time, and spatial relationships through malleable sculptures that invite visitor participation. Her artworks alternate between flat, abstract compositions, and fully three-dimensional forms. Working with both transparent and color acrylics, Chilindron’s structures change in both shape and color according to the viewer’s perspective.

Created especially for this occasion, Chilindron presents two new participatory sculptures: Star, which captures the vibrant and malleable geometry of nature, and Tall, a five-foot-high sculpture painted in colorful fluorescent and iridescent acrylics. The works on view share an emphasis on movement, optics, perception, and the constant flux of our uncertain realities.

Marta Chilindron received a BFA from the State University of New York in 1980, and studied at the Valdotavo Studio Camnitzer-Porter in 1977 and 1978. Chilindron’s work is included in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Texas; the Blanton Museum of Art, Texas; El Museo del Barrio, New York; the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation, Miami; and the Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona; among others.
