MALBA opens its 2015 season, the first under Agustín Pérez Rubio, the museum’s Artistic Director since May 2014, with three exhibitions: Infinite Experience; Annemarie Heinrich. Secret Intentions; and Osías Yanov. VI Parliamentary Session.

Infinite Experience
Curated by Agustín Pérez Rubio, this is an exhibition of live works that incites reflection on forms of life as well as art and the museum, The works consist of constructed situations, live installations, and representations and choreographies created in the first years of the 21st century. 

Works by eight outstanding international artists will be featured in the exhibition: Allora & Calzadilla, Diego Bianchi, Elmgreen & Dragset, Dora García, Pierre Huyghe, Roman Ondák, Tino Sehgal, and Judi Werthein. This is the first time most of these artists have shown their work in Argentina.

The exhibition is born of a question: Is a live museum—where the works act, speak, move about, and live eternally—possible? For Agustín Pérez Rubio, artistic director of MALBA and curator of the exhibition: “The works in Experiencia Infinita are particularly concerned with the idea of the living as work and as a component of a kind of art that ensues not only in time but also in space: experience as journey, different situations that take place one after another,” he explains. 

Reflection on the relationship between time and work is crucial to the entire show. The works selected engage their historical modalities of visualization in the form of a loop, a clock, an endless narrative, parapsychological perceptions, a litany of songs and stances with political content, and art history itself as it has been told to us if never seen by us. 

Annemarie Heinrich. Secret Intentions
Genesis of women’s liberation in her vintage photographs
Curated by Victoria Giraudo and Agustín Pérez Rubio, features a selection of 90 vintage photographs—many of them on exhibit for the first time—from the thirties to the sixties. On the basis of feminist theory, the exhibition focuses on the more intimate and personal work of Annemarie Heinrich (Darmstadt, Germany, 1912– Buenos Aires, 2005), an emblematic 20th-century Argentine photographer whose more commercial production—she was one of the great portraitists of Argentine movie stars of the forties—obscured her more personal work. Heinrich had an avant-garde approach to the body and to female sexuality and sensuality; this exhibition will revolve around her nudes and the register of her intimate world and family life. 

Osías Yanov. VI Parliamentary Session 
Curated by Laeticia Mello, the show presents artist Osías Yanov’s (b.1980, Buenos Aires) recent research into the language of action on the basis of the power of sculpture as object and its dialogue with the body. If a routine of movements were capable of establishing a law, what would a parliament of bodies based on choreographies be like? Through performance practices in relation to sculptural elements, this work explores the individual as generator of changes by means of his or her physical reverberations.
