Analía Saban is a contemporary conceptual artist based in Los Angeles. She rethinks traditional media such as painting, sculpture and drawing in the context of scientific and technological experimentation and reworks materials like marble or canvas in confusing, subversive ways. We will discuss with Saban her artistic practice and how it relates to the larger social implications of her material and object-based inquiries.

She received a BFA in 2001 from Loyola University, New Orleans, and an MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2005.
