BERLIN.- Galerie Barbara Thumm announced the global representation of the estate of Teresa Burga. 

The gallery is planning a comprehensive tribute exhibition with an accompanying publication for the spring of 2021.

“Based on my long standing relationship with Teresa Burga of almost a decade, I am very honored to continue to secure her great legacy as a radical woman artist.” –Barbara Thumm

Teresa Burga (Iquitos, 1935 - Lima, 2021) is an internationally acclaimed artist of feminist and conceptual art. As a co-founder of the Arte Nuevo group (1966-1967), Burga strategically used pop aesthetics to introduce a visual repertoire that questioned the predominant male canon.

In the 1970s, Burga’s work was as experimental as it was radical. Combining passion with scientific rigor, she devoted herself to exploring dematerialized art in dialogue with technology, communication and time. The multimedia oeuvre includes paintings, conceptually conceived, extensive drawing series, large-scale environments, technical media such as slide or video installations, and even cybernetic installations.

Teresa Burga’s work gained a wider international recognition in the early 2000s. Her valuable work began an ascending even steeper path of new projects and monographic exhibitions, with participation in biennials as well as books. Her work was included in the Istanbul Biennial (2011) and the Venice Biennale (2013), which marked the first ever participation of a Peruvian artist in the main section of this event. In addition important monographic exhibitions of her work have been presented at the Württembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart (2011); at MALBA, Argentina (2015); "Teresa Burga. An Artist or a Computer?" at SMAK Gent, Belgium (2018); and "Aleatory Structures" at the Migros Museum, Switzerland, as well as the Kestner Gesellschaft Hannover (2018), amongst others.

Teresa Burga’s work is included in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, IL, USA; Migros Museum, Zurich, Switzerland; Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (M HKA), Antwerp, Belgium; Museo de Arte de Lima (MALI), Lima, Peru; Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA), Argentina; Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Germany; Collection Hochschild, Lima, Peru; Sammlung Verbund Collection, Vienna, Austria; Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Collection, Vienna, Austria; Pinault Collection, Venice, Italy; Jorge Perez Collection Miami amongst others. In 2016, the Ministerio de Cultura of Peru recognized Burga's contributions to Peruvian culture by awarding her the prestigious distinction Personalidad Meritoria de la Cultura.
