Cristina Tufiño Gallery Art





Inspired by consumer goods, industrial debris and autobiographical narratives and objects, Cristina Tufiño addresses her practice as an archaeologist hoarder rummaging through a broad cultural system of references, with a particular nod to artifacts and museological aesthetics. Her multimedia works arise from a process of assembling, associating and translating images and ideas inspired by seemingly oppositional languages and spaces. Tufiño's photographic compositions, prints, videos, installations and sculptures, give a new meaning to post-studio practices and the use of social debris in our time.


Recent exhibitions of Cristina Tufiño’s work include Hidrante, San Juan, Embajada, San Juan, Lugar de Proyectos, Caguas. In 2015, Tufiño was mentioned as an Artist to Watch by Modern Painters magazine.
