Encompassing paintings and environments in the vein of pop art, as well as conceptual drawings and cybernetic installations, the oeuvre of Peruvian artist Teresa Burga (born 1935) highlights the individual's ability to influence social conditions. Her early attraction to conceptual art led her to become a founding member of the Peruvian avant-garde movement Grupo Arte Nuevo (1966-68). In 1968, as a Fulbright scholar, Burga left Peru to study at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she developed her mature pop-conceptual practice, moving away from painting to produce installations, research-based projects and happenings. This volume provides an overview of her work from the 1960s to the present, reflecting on Burga's strategies and themes.
