Analia Saban

Analia Saban (b. 1980, Buenos Aires, Argentina) deconstructs the elements of painting, leaning into semantics, science and play in her multifaceted work, which she executes with unbridled experimentation and scientific rigour. Saban studied under John Baldessari in the New Genres MFA department at the University of California, Los Angeles, between 2002 and 2005, and presented her first solo exhibition at Josh Lilley in 2010. Her works are represented in, among others, the permanent collections of the Hammer Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art and LACMA, Los Angeles; Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College, New York; and the Centre Pompidou, Paris.

Analia Saban lives and works in Los Angeles.
