With her conceptualist pieces
Teresa Burga (born 1935 in Iquitos, Peru, lives and works in Lima, Peru) is a pioneer of media art, technology-based art
and installation art in Peru. In the 1960s, Burga was a member of the group Arte Nuevo. The group is widely credited with the introduction of the new avant-garde tendencies in the Peruvian context, such as Pop Art
, Op art
. The recent new reassessment of Burga's work is realized in the context of activities pursued by a broad network of Latin American
art theorists and artists, who are presently embarking upon a rereading of the conceptualisms of the South (Southern Conceptualisms Network).
