“The use of the page as an artistic medium”: Catalina Parra and her work in editorial publications in the 1970s.

Abstract in spanish

In this article I explore the participation of Chilean artist Catalina Parra as a visualizer and diagrammer in certain editorial publications (Manuscritos Magazine and some books and catalogues of V.I.S.U.A.L.). These works offer a key to the analysis of the different production techniques of the artist, being fundamental montage techniques and theories form the basis of this exploration as it is through her work that words and images are manipulated as compositional material on the pages/media to be reviewed and in her photomontages. And it is in this common exercise where effects could be recognised that allow us to problematise certain states of art, as well as aesthetic and intellectual questions.
