Oswaldo Maciá is an artist working across media, hailing from the Caribbean city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. During the 1990s, after completing an MFA at Goldsmiths College, University of London, his work was shown in solo exhibitions at key venues such as the Museum of Installation and Clove gallery as well as in group shows such as the seminal Ideal Standard Summertime at Lisson Gallery (1996). Since then he has gone on to create olfactory-acoustic sculptures, performances, installations, and collaborations sourced from research across diverse environments, landscapes, and social contexts. His works have been exhibited all over the world, including at the Riga Biennial (2018), Tate Britain (2016), Manifesta 9 (2012), Biennal de Cuenca, Ecuador (2011), Thessaloniki Biennale, Greece (2009) and many others. In 2018 Maciá won the Golden Pear at the fifth annual Art and Olfaction Awards in London for his experimental work with scent, and his work is held in international collections such as Tate Britain and Daros Latinamerica. He lives and works in the UK and the USA.
