The Contemporary Art Museum of Buenos Aires | Aldo Rubino Foundation is pleased to present Latin America: Back To The Future, curated by Federico Baeza. The exhibition aims to reveal the so far invisible links existing between Latin American modernistic projects of the 50’s, and present-day artistic practices. From Concrete artworks to their contemporary reinterpretations, this exhibition underlines the existence of continuities and recurrences from country to country, from era to era, thus contradicting a linear approach of chronology.
At the exhibition, visitors will be able to admire the works of art of more than seventy artists – most of them belonging to the museum’s collection, as well as new acquisitions. Moreover, the scenography evokes Modernist hangings, at a time when museums evolved deeply.
The exhibition tackles several issues: the elaboration of new visual languages, the transformation of urban space, new relationships to space and time and the emergence of ambitious social transformation projects.
