Mirtha Dermisache

Mirtha Dermisache was born on 16 February 1940 in Lanús, a town on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. She first got a teaching degree and one in art education, and then attended the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón, currently the Departamento de Artes Visuales of the Universidad Nacional de las Artes (UNA).

In 1971, she began participating regularly in exhibitions and other projects, and became an active member of the contemporary art scene. At the same time, she opened the Taller de Acciones Creativas (TAC), a space for the teaching of different art techniques with the aim of developing the creative capacity and free graphic expression in adults. From 1975-81, she ran the public Jornadas del Color y de la Forma (Intensive Work Sessions in Color and Form). Music was a key part of her exploration and personal creative process, and she used it as a tool in her original teaching method.

After Mirtha Dermisache died on 23 January 2012, her heirs formed an Estate, Legado Mirtha Dermisache, to keep her legacy alive. For more information about her work and a comprehensive biography, please visit: www.mirthadermisache.com.

Here, all archival material related to her work is available to the public for consultation: www.espigas.org.ar.
