Born in 1965, Argentina
Lives and works in Córdoba, Argentina

Hugo Aveta (born in 1965, Argentina, lives and works in Cordoba, Argentina) is one of the most remarkable artists of the Argentina art scene. After architectural and cinema studies, Hugo Aveta is devoted mainly to photography and video since more than twenty years.

Time, History and archives are his main research focuses. A collective memory which emerges through his photographs, videos or installations, from places or objects which have an history and that he reproduced into a model by adding what has been destroyed by History (photographic "Soma" and "Espacios Sustraibles") or from archival images projected ("Ni vencedores ni vencidos, Buenos Aires, Argentina - junio 1955", 2014) on a canvas covered by a photosensitive emultion which he photographs the image few seconds before it disappears ("Ritmos Primarios, la Subversiòn del Alma" series, and the video of the same title).

Aveta's work has been featured in numerous museum exhibitions including the Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires (MAMBA), the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (MACRO), the National Museum of Fine Arts (MNBA), the Museum of Contemporary Art of Salta (Argentina), the Museum of Latin American Art (MOMAA) in California, the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris (Photoquai Biennial) and more recently, at the MAISON ROUGE - Fondation Antoine de Galbert in Paris as well as to the MUNTREF Centro de Arte Contemporaneo, Hotel de Inmigrantes in Buenos Aires.

Photographs and videos by Hugo Aveta are included in the permanent collections of MNBA, MAMBA, Emilio Caraffa Museum of Fine Arts of Córdoba, MACRO, Musée du Quai Branly and MOMAA, MUNTREF and most recently in the collection of Fonds National d'Art Contemporain (FNAC) France.
