Isabel Nuño de Buenan artist working in the fields of sculpture and drawing. She has received various grants and awards, most recently the Villa Minimo Prize from the Kunstverein Hannover, Germany (2017-2018) and the Grant for Young Creators FONCA, Mexico (2015-16). She currently lives and works as a resident at the Villa Minimo from the Kunstverein Hannover.

For her contribution to Dwelling Poetically: Mexico City, a case study, at the ACCA Melbourne, Isabel Nuño de Buen will develop a new group of sculptures drawing on memories of familiar objects encountered in the cityscape, that will be later assembled to a site specific installation which the artist refers to as constellation or psychological landscape. This new piece will continue her research on anthropomorphic, modular and fragmentary forms and further explore the systematic elements and diagrammatic characteristics of her work, whilst responding to the exhibition space.
SPEAKER creates a space to come together to listen to, think about and discuss ideas. It is a series of talks by contemporary artists and curators, and it offers a chance to engage with a range of art practices and cultural issues—from the emerging to the established—the local to the international. SPEAKER is presented by RMIT School of Art, History and Theory and Cultures and INTERSECT.
