We are pleased to invite you to visit Chapter IV of the series of online exhibitions on the the game-changing developments of art in Argentina during the ’90s, curated by art historian Francisco Lemus. This installment is devoted to Alberto Goldenstein, a key figure in the development of contemporary photography in Argentina.
Goldenstein emerged in the late eighties, developing an esthetic based on the snapshot, bold use of color, centering his attention on the everyday and turning the camera into an extension of his subjectivity, working against the grain of traditional notions of good photographic composition. He was central to the art scene which grew around the Centro Cultural Rojas during the early nineties, being curator of its photo-gallery and teaching photography workshops at the “Rojas” for over 25 years, Goldenstein has been a major influence on younger generations.
