On Monuments

On view through 6 November 2020 enter

Born in 1983 in Bogotá, Colombia
Lives and works in Paris, France


Argote creates videos, photographs, sculpture, public interventions and performances, as a way to explore our inextricable links to history, tradition, art, politics and power. Argote investigates the city as a place of transformation and potentiality, traveling the world in search of vestigial signs of fallen power, studying the indirect manifestations of control, and observing the conventions that gain acceptance in order for one vision of history to become the official version. Public monuments and sculpture are also recurring themes in the artist’s work. Through his personal narratives, and their connections to history, ideology, and consumerism, Iván Argote questions a Western perspective of History. Emmanuel Perrotin met Iván Argote in 2008 while the artist was a student at Paris Fine Arts School. Perrotin has represented Argote since 2009.
