You wrote your B.A. thesis on Argentine art while working at Artsy. Can you tell us about it?
I wrote my thesis on a small institution, the Center for Art and Communication (or CAyC), which operated in Argentina from the late-1960s to the 1980s. Most accounts of Argentine art from this period have focused on a handful of artists tied to the Di Tella Institute and the collective action Tucumán Arde in the late-1960s. The commonly told narrative is that many artists abandoned art production for direct political action in the midst of intense censorship and repression. While many did for a time, this isn’t the whole story. In fact, there was a great deal of engaged and incisive artwork produced in the 1970s, which I discovered for the first time in the process of archival research.
