Some Artists / 90 – TODAY is on exhibition at Fundación Proa through July 2013. This show provides an overview of tendencies in Argentine art from the nineties through the present. The works on display were selected by critic Rafael Cippolini and artists Ana Gallardo, Cecilia Szalkowicz and Gastón Pérsico.

During the nineties, alternative art spaces emerged and brought together artists from different disciplines to formulate a new way of being an artist. Their approach included the problems of cultural production and the tasks of gallerists and theorists; they often engaged in the publication of magazines. Many of the works in this show were exhibited at those alternative spaces, like Belleza y Felicidad (Beauty and Happiness) and La Galería del Rojas. Without attempting a reconstruction, the exhibition evokes the atmosphere of that time in its layout and selection of works.

In the early 2000s, the economic and social crisis that gripped Argentina affected the daily work of many artists, accentuating some of the tendencies that were present in the nineties: the use of non-traditional materials taken from daily life and the pursuit of “beauty and happiness” as the mission of art. In the new century, artists dialogued with the world, participating in residencies abroad. This period witnessed a change in aesthetics that led to new artistic formulations in terms of texture, format and material.

The exhibition closes with the section linked to the word “TODAY” in its title, that is, the present and the production of artists who make use of the drawing medium, as well as urban interventions, projects, video and photography.

With more than three hundred works, Some Artists / 90 – TODAY is one of the first exhibitions to bring together a large number of artists active in the last two decades.

The exhibition catalogue includes a dossier of relevant documentary material that evidences the different voices engaged in theoretical debate on the production from this period, as well as an important number of reproductions of works on exhibit.

In Some Artists / 90 – TODAY the holdings of three extraordinary collections are on display: the collections of Gustavo Bruzzone, Alejandro Ikonicoff and Esteban Tedesco. Rather than the public domain, it is collectors who have been responsible for preserving and keeping the works of these artists, thus protecting the artistic patrimony of the period.

The exhibition is sponsored by Tenaris, Organización Techint; Fundación Proa is responsible for its conception, organization and production.
