Dario Robleto

Throughout his 20-year career as an artist, Dario Robleto has sought to cultivate rigorous, mutually transformative interactions among the arts, humanities, and sciences. Tapping into multiple creative traditions ranging from astrophysics and paleontology to poetry and DJ culture, his work has focused with particular intensity on theories and practices of recording and on the material and emotional structures of intergenerational relay and memory. His work has been exhibited widely and is held in prominent collections including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Menil Collection, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. He has been a research fellow or artist in residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, the SETI Institute, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, the Space Telescope Science Institute, and a wide variety of other cultural and academic institutions. Robleto is currently serving as the first artist-at-large at Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Block Museum of Art. He lives and works in Houston, Texas.
