Curated by Andrés Duprat and Diego Sileo
The exhibition presents a selection of works created by more than twenty Argentinean artists of different generations over the last fifty years. Through sculptures, installations, photographs, videos and performances, the curatorial project develops along three axes - irony, literalness and citation - presenting different approaches to the representation of a culture often characterised, in the past as well as today, by forms of violence. Situations and attitudes that overcome conjunctures and settle into a question about the future and what social battles to fight, in Argentina and the rest of the world. A heterogeneous project that also tries to narrate and bring out the many different aspects and forms of expression of a country that for years was the main destination of the great European migrations.
