Argentina's unique urban art culture arrives in the US for the first time with 'The Talking Walls of Buenos Aires', a show curated by graffitimundo at The Fridge gallery in Washington DC. 

“The Talking Walls of Buenos Aires” features mural art and original artworks from leading Argentine artists and art collectives, as well as video works and historical and contemporary photography portraying the urban landscape of Buenos Aires and seminal moments in the country’s history.

The exhibition celebrates a form of expression rooted in activism and a desire to transform public space, and in the process challenges conventional views on what graffiti is, what street art represents, who creates it, and why.
