Real Photographs Poster for the lecture by Nicola Costantino at CalArts
Nicola Costantino was born in Rosario, Argentina, on November 17, 1964, into a family of Italian descent. As a child, she was a little unusual, with remarkably popping eyes and too many scientific and technical leanings. At home, Spanish was forbidden until late in her adolescence. That was also when she was exposed to visual arts through a book about painting that her mother’s second husband purchased. Back then, visits to museums and art galleries were very few and far between.
