Forbes: Ernesto Burgos' New Art Exhibition, One Thing After Another

Forbes

Burgos was born in the Bay Area. His father, a Chilean exile, spent three years in a prison camp after Pinochet’s coup. He was eventually rescued by an Irish missionary, and moved to the Bay Area, where he met Burgos’ mother. When his parents split, Burgos moved to Chile with his father, at the age of 9. Ten years later, Burgos would return to the U.S., where he enrolled in the California College of the Arts. In 2006, he moved to New York to attend graduate school at NYU.
