“TO THINK EVERYTHING OVER AGAIN”
Rolf Art Gallery, Buenos Aires
Available online through July 31, 2020
“TO THINK EVERYTHING OVER AGAIN” is an exhibition conceived shortly before the pandemic began, and which was resignified in the context of isolation that began in March 2020. The online exhibition revisits a selection of significant historical works by established Latin American artists, to be read in a present key. These works interrogate the relationship between man and nature, radical differences in the distribution of wealth, the existence of inequality, the relative meanings of domesticity, isolation, loneliness, and memory, and feminism as a practice and theory that has addressed all these questions. As we confront an upcoming return to normalcy, an implicit question resonates through the exhibition: What kind of world do we want to return to?
Magali Lara, “Coraza”
Walden Gallery, Buenos Aires
Through July 31, 2020
Working from a feminist perspective, Magali Lara, under the curatorship of Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, pre-sents an exhibition in which we can observe and feel the folds of experience that the human being ac-cumulates — the shell that we generate as a defense mechanism, preventing the flow of vital energy between our being and the outside world. Lara’s works negotiate between the past and the present. Her vision offers a catalyst for the current situation: embody landscape, be, live, and embrace the pre-sent.
Benjamín Cieza Hurtado, “Sigue Siendo Hoy”
Vigil Gonzales Gallery, Lima
Through July 3, 2020
“Sigue Siendo Hoy” is the first solo exhibition of Peruvian artist Benjamín Cieza Hurtado. It deals with a series of concepts regarding everyday life and the coming-of-age challenges faced by a young adult. Using a photographic family archive as source material, Cieza Hurtado depicts nostalgic scenes in which physical contact is encouraged — very different from how we are told to behave in the time of social distancing.
