Isabel Barbuzza was born and raised in Argentina and is currently an associate professor at the School of Art and Art History in the University of Iowa.

Her interest lies “in the relationships between space, place, objects and materials in contemporary society and how through perception, thought and language we facilitate engaging with the physical world.”

Her work runs the gamut  from artists books to sculpture to installation. Enjoy!
