Eduardo Navarro (born 1979 in Buenos Aires) is a contemporary Argentinian artist. He lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since 2002, he has worked in a variety of mediums, including sculpture, collage, performance and installation.


Eduardo Navarro inserts himself in legal, spiritual, scientific, medical, archaeological environments and draws on a series of discussions and exchanges within these groups and in their context. In a video he created for the Americas Society exhibition, "From Confrontation to Intimacy," in 2007 at the Americas Society in New York, he 'infiltrated' a group of New Age Street performers.[1]

Navarro's projects are wide in range. At the launch of a five-month pedagogical program in concert with the 9th Bienal do Mercosul, Eduardo Navarro sent a telepathic message from his home in Buenos Aires to those willing to receive it whom had attended a lecture on curiosity at the Bienal.[2][3]

Navarro studied from 2003–2005 with artist Guillermo Kuitca in the Program for the Visual Arts C.C.R.R. in Argentina, where he lives and works. In 2006, he studied at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and received a UBS Art Scholarship/Individual grant Program for emerging artists.
