MCMC gallery is pleased to present work in a variety of media by renound experimental Argentinian artist, Eduardo Costa, including Name of Friends: Poems for the Deaf-Mute, which is held in the collection of MoMA.

Costa (b. 1940, Argentina; lives and works in New York) is known for his “volumetric paintings.” These painted three-dimensional objects exemplify his work in geometric abstraction, though he has worked across genres, from Pop to Conceptual art. Language, orality, and fiction have also been prime concerns in his oevre. Costa settled in New York in 1967 (with an interval of four years in Brazil) where he worked for more than 20 years alogside artists such as Vito Acconci, Scott Burton, Hannah Weiner, and John Perreault.
