Contemporary Argentine Art

Three-week course, first session

This course will cover an overview of the current state of the art in Argentina. We will cover works from the mid-80's to today. The problematic relationship between the artistic and economic and social crises that shook the country in 2001 and the world in 2008, will be a topic of particular concern to our course. While Buenos Aires is one of the most important centers of production and circulation, we will also attempt to reflect the artistic situation in various cities, paying particular attention to Rosario, as the epicenter of production in contemporary art. We will work with paintings, sculptures, video art, performances, interventions, installations, and artistic productions that are evidence of the crossing of languages and their interdisciplinary nature.
