Lives and works in Buenos Aires. She is considered one of the most important and influential Argentine artists of her generation. Her multifaceted practice centers on the visual arts, but encompasses as well celebrated poetry and novels, the creation of alternative cultural spaces and projects, social practice, and feminist activism. Her first solo exhibitions were held at the Centro Cultural Rojas in 1994 and 1995. In 2001, she co-founded Belleza y Felicidad, an exhibition and meeting space that marked a milestone in the development of art in Buenos Aires during the early 2000s. In this context, she organized more than two hundred art exhibitions and a low-cost publishing house. Afterwards she moved Belleza y Felicidad to Villa Fiorito, where for more than a decade she has been developing an art program for children and a center for feminist activism through artistic projects. In the last recent decade she created and managed a series of independent art spaces: Tu Rito, Agatha Costure, El Universo, and others. She has published nine books, the next one will come out under the Random House publishing label. Recent solo and group shows include Fernanda Laguna: As Everybody (Como Todo el Mundo), Institute of Contemporary Art, Virgina Commonwealth University (2020); A Universal History of Infamy, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2017); Site Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA; and Take me, I’m Yours, Villa Medici, Rome. In February 2022, a solo exhibition of her works on paper will be held at the Drawing Center, New York. Her work is in the collections of Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Centro de Arte Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid (thanks to a donation from Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, New York); CA2M, Madrid; the Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires; the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA); the Rufino Tamayo Museum, Mexico City; Jorge Perez collection, Miami and many private collections.
