A TRAJECTORY OF EDUCATION, EXHIBITIONS & APPOINTMENTS
Renato Osoy (1974) Artist. Works as an independent art-researcher,
teacher and curator with a trajectory of exhibitions and events.
His research interests are primarily linked to two topics:
first, the conceptual and practical use of text-images,
images and texts in their multiple multiplications and
applications as forms of representation, and secondly,
art’s ludic and experimental nature as trans-formative
agent in epistemological enquiries.
