Photography in Argentina, 1850-2010: Contradiction and Continuity
September 16, 2017 - January 28, 2018

From its independence in 1810 until the economic crisis of 2001, Argentina has been perceived as a modern country with a powerful economic system, a massive European immigrant population, an especially strong middle class, and an almost nonexistent indigenous culture. This idea of a homogenous and progressive society underlines the difference between Argentina and its neighbors. Comprising three hundred works by sixty artists, this exhibition examines crucial periods and aesthetic movements in which photography had a critical role, producing—and, at times, dismantling—national constructions, utopian visions, and avant-garde artistic trends.
