Ines Raiteri (b. Mar del Plata, 1963) is an artist working with textiles, painting, and installation. Her work focuses on a variety of topics such as urban design and architecture, the relationship between bodies and space, community interaction, memory, and the intimate. The interaction between people and the participation of the community takes a central place in Raiteri’s work. She invites artists, students, and children to collaborate on embroidery projects. The relationship among people is also part of the murals or site-specific works she has designed for various workspaces, including Facebook. Since 2009, Raiteri has been a member of PintorAs, a collective of women painters in Argentina. She lives and works in Buenos Aires.
