In this edition of arteBA, Galería Nora Fisch is participating in the fair’s main section with a
selection of gallery artists, and presenting a Cabinet devoted to Fernanda Laguna —an iconic and
influential multi-disciplinary artist— curated by Santiago Villanueva. It will also show Juan Tessi in
the Cardinal Sites section, in a collaborative booth with LTD, Los Angeles.
The legacy of recent Argentinean art history will be present in the works of painter Alfredo
Londaibere (1955-2017) and photographer Alberto Goldenstein (1951). Both were central to the
scene that developed around the Centro Cultural Rojas in Buenos Aires in the nineties, a
contemporary vernacular movement which was a milestone in the development of local art,
reclaiming notions of visual pleasure, craft, spontaneity and a poetics of urban everyday objects,
while associated with gender fluidity.
Osias Yanov (1980) whose projects include performances, events, installations, drawings,
sculptures and videos that intertwine rituals, parties, gender theories and esoteric philosophies will
be showing a new series of works. Departing from the traditional board game Snakes and Ladders,
he is developing a series of “ladders” which, through encoded references, depict the history of
Exploration of pictorial language will be represented by the works of Sofia Bohtlingk (1976), Tiziana
Pierri (1984) and Juan Becú (1980). Bohtlingk will present her newest paintings, almost
illusionistic, as figurative elements depicting a dreamy, secret an sexualized woman’s world are
disguised as gestural abstractions. Becú will show recent works that play off the history of portraits
and Tiziana Pierri her playful explorations of painterly gestures.
Both Amadeo Azar and Julián Terán will show works on paper, Azar exploring the articulation of
formal languages derived from Modernism and social utopias; Terán creating worlds constructed
by accumulation of lines that intersect topography and astronomy with language and translation.
Fernanda Laguna (1972) is one of the most relevant and influential Argentinean artists of her
generation, due to her multifaceted art practice which includes visual art, poetry and novels, the
creation of alternative exhibition and gathering spaces, and an effective on-going social
practice. In the year 2000 she co-founded Belleza y Felicidad (Beauty and Happiness) considered
a watershed moment in Argentinean art. This Cabinet, curated by Santiago Villanueva, focuses on
her production of that time and on little-seen pieces.
