Gabriel Chaile (Tucuman, 1985) studied Visual Arts at the National University of Tucumán. In 2009 he was awarded with a scholarship by Fundación YPF which allowed him to be a part of the first edition of the Artists Program launched by University Torcuato Di Tella. In 2010 he was selected to participate of Lipac, an art program by Centro Cultural Ricardo Rojas.
In the works of Gabriel Chaile there is a junction between anthropology, theology-religion and ar which is crossed by sense of humor, poetics, symbolics and political. Chaile likes to think of himself as a communicator of images which he reaches through contextual observations; to this end, Chaile puts himself and his context as his object of study. The forms question themselves and their condition of being as well as the relationship between one and the other.
His latest works include Sonia (El ondulatorio, La Rioja, 2018); Proto, a movie by Gabriel Chaile (Galería Ruby, Buenos Aires , 2017); Patricia, curated by Laura Hackel (Museo de Arte Moderno, Buenos Aires, 2017); Mi nombre es legión porque somos muchos (Centro Cultural San Pablo T, Tucumán, 2016); No es culpa mía si viene del río (Centro Cultural Recoleta, Buenos Aires 2015); Salir del surco al labrar la tierra, delirios de grandeza II (Fondo Nacional de las Artes, Buenos Aires, 2014). Chaile was part of many collective exhibitions in Tucumán, Lima, Montevideo, Paris, Cuenca and Buenos Aires. He currently lives and works in Buenos Aires.
Gabriel Chaile proposes a “Genealogy of the Shape” as a collective poem that is constantly under construction. An ensemble of sculptures is organized in the exhibiting space as a large organism that breathes through arteries of steel and copper.

30.03.2019 [...] "Finding its way between agitating self-consciousness and sleepwalking automatism, Marcelo Pombo reads History and his story over and over again in an exhibition that unfolds as strangely as dreams: a series of successive stations holding particularly vivid, mystifying instants of contemplation, visionary images. The iconographies he has been treasuring throughout his extensive journey return once again but disruptively". Federico Baeza for Templos de barrio by Marcelo Pombo.
