Of Argentina’s enfant terrible, Alberto Greco, we will exhibit the complete series of 30 photographs that record his performative action Vivo Dito in Piedralaves, made in 1963 in a small town of the province of Ávila. This photographic record was taken by photographer Monserrat Santamaria and shows Greco crossing the streets of the town with a 200 meters roll of paper written with his artistic manifesto Arte Vivo Dito.
In addition, we will exhibit the photographic record one of Alberto Greco´s first street actions recorded by Sameer Makarius in 1961: Alberto Greco ¡Que grande que sos! Here, Greco covered the entire corner street of Corrientes and Libertad with posters with the inscriptions: "Alberto Greco is great!" and, "Alberto Greco, the most important informalist painter in America". These photographs are part of the collections of The Klem Foundation in Buenos Aires, the MOMA in NYC and the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid.
