Aimée Zito Lema

Aimée Zito Lema (b.1982, Amsterdam) is a Dutch-Argentinean visual artist.

Both research-based and intuitive, Zito Lema works with archival material and personal memory. Her projects seek to investigate history as it is passed through generations, and in turn, as a tool to rethink the present.

Growing up between Argentina and the Netherlands, she is influenced by movements: of the body in space, across geographies; and of the past into the present.

Her work has been exhibited at Grazer Kunstverein (AU), Oude Kerk, Amsterdam (NL), CentroCentro, Madrid (SP); Gulbenkian Museum, Lisbon (PT); Kunsthall, Trondheim (SE); MACBA, Barcelona (ES); the 11th Gwangju Biennial (ROK); Kunstmuseum Bonn (DE) and the Centre Pompidou, Paris (FR).

Zito Lema was artist-in-residency at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (2015/2016). She lives and works in Amsterdam.
