It is with great joy that we present a project that the gallery, in conjunction with
curator and art historian Francisco Lemus, has been working on since lockdown
began: a series of online exhibitions jointly entitled Orgullo y Prejuicio: Art in Argentina in the 90s and Beyond. We set out to explore the local developments during the nineties from a number of different perspectives as this decade was a turning point in how the local art scene operates. The modalities and developments that emerged in the nineties are lines of force active in the art practices from the decades that followed and even into the present.
This first installment acts as a sort of introduction or tree trunk off of which a number of branches will sprout in the months that remain in 2020, and as the weather gets warmer in the global South. Subsequent installments will be sent
out on a roughly biweekly basis.
With this project, the gallery reaffirms its commitment to communicating the
Argentine contemporary art scene, providing the frame of reference and
conceptual translation necessary for it to be understood internationally.
Monday September 14th, 6pm Buenos Aires: presentation of the project via Zoom with curator Francisco Lemus (in Spanish). Find link soon in our Instagram @galerianorafisch
