The exhibition A 18 minutos del sol addresses astronomical observation and access to outer space as axes to activate a dialogue between artistic imagination and scientific exploration. Outer space is accessed from three different and interconnected perspectives: science, indigenous cosmologies and spirituality. Around each of these centers of interest orbit more than ninety Argentine artists from different territories and generations who established deep connections with the cosmovisions of the sky, from their own perspectives and objectives. The exhibition proposes an open investigation throughout the entire Argentine territory, from the Chaco of Salta to Patagonia, and the entire history of art in our country, encompassing both historical and contemporary artists, in order to understand the map we create, from the south, in order to get closer to the stars and their reflections.
The exhibition underscores the popular, spiritual and scientific ties that linked the visual production of our territory with the great questions about outer space, which has led to a rewriting of colonial narratives about the political and social history of our skies. Taking as a fundamental axis the local indigenous perspective, for which the sky is a reflection of the Earth and vice versa, the exhibition dives into the potentiality of feeling the skies that cover us as a way of understanding the planet on which we live.
