Pablo Bronstein (born 1977, Buenos Aires) is an Argentine artist based in London. He attended Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design, the Slade School of Fine Art, and Goldsmiths College.

His work spans from drawing to choreography and performance, always with a focus on architecture. Bronstein’s illustrations of buildings resemble architectural plans of 18th-century France and the 1980s, with much reference to Baroque. His performances incorporate choreography and often satirically fuse modern and historic elements to comment on art and its place in society.

He has shown work internationally in exhibitions including a major solo presentation at RIBA, London, in 2017, Conservatism, or the Long Reign of Pseudo-Georgian Architecture, and the unveiling of a permanent commission at Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh. In 2016 Bronstein was the recipient of the Tate Britain Duveen Commission, for which he produced Historical Dances in an Antique Setting in the Duveen Galleries. In 2016 he also designed the set for The Creation, produced by Rambert and reenacted at Garsington Opera, Buckinghamshire, before touring to Sadler’s Wells, London. Bronstein's previous exhibitions include The Grand Tour at Nottingham Contemporary and Chatsworth House (2015), We Live in Mannerist Times at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (2015), A is Building, B is Architecture at Centre d'Art Contemporain in Geneva (2013), Sketches for Regency Living at the ICA in London (2011), and Pablo Bronstein at The Met at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (2009). Bronstein choreographed a Plaza Minuet for the Tate Triennale in 2006. He is represented by Herald St in London and Franco Noero in Turin.
