Dario Robleto is an artist whose multifaceted practice links careful research with romantic earnestness and conceptual precision with unorthodox fabrication. His sculptures, prints and wall works combine esoteric materials and processes to explore forgotten, little-known, or as-yet unfamiliar corners of history, art, and science. Robleto has had over 30 solo exhibitions since 1997, at institutions including the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art, The Contemporary Art Museum of American Art at Altria, and most recently the Menial Collection in Houston, TX. He has been a Research Fellow at the Smithsonian Museum of American History and is currently an artist-in-residence at the SETI Institute.
