The Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires celebrates its 60th Anniversary in a major series of exhibitions as 2016 draws to a close:

Antonio Berni. Revelaciones sobre papel. 1922–1981 
(Antonio Berni: Revelations on Paper (1922–1981))

October 26, 2016–February 19, 2017

An exhibition of 222 recently-discovered drawings by Antonio Berni (1905-1981) spanning his entire artistic career, curated by Marcelo E. Pacheco. These include his poignant works on violence during the 20th Century and his reflective process on the Korean and Vietnam wars and the Latin American dictatorships, Argentina comprised.

Hernán Soriano. Formar mentalmente una máquina 
(Hernán Soriano: How To Mentally Form a Machine)

October 26, 2016–February 19, 2017

A solo project by Hernán Soriano (Buenos Aires, 1978) that explores mechanisms of phantasmagoric translation of publications and litographs depicting medieval religious imagery and works from the history of European painting.

Pablo Picasso. Más allá de la semejanza: Dibujos de la Colección del Musée national Picasso-Paris seleccionados con el Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires 
(Pablo Picasso: Beyond Resemblance.
Drawings from the Musée national Picasso-Paris Collection, selected with the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires)
November 18, 2016–February 28, 2017

The first retrospective exhibition of Picasso’s drawings in Argentina, curated by Victoria Noorthoorn, director of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, and Associate Curator Emilia Philippot, who is curator of paintings (1895–1921) and graphics at the Musée national Picasso-Paris. The exhibition is structured as one unique line of 74 drawings selected from the collection of the Musée national Picasso-Paris created between 1897 and 1972 that highlights drawing as the fundamental ground of the artist´s investigations.

Tracey Rose: Toro Salvaje (Wild Bull)
December 15, 2016–March 12, 2017

The first solo show of Tracey Rose in Argentina creates a twisted, chaotic playground within the museum, an analysis of the subterranean crossroads of the Argentine dictatorship’s political legacy, the assassination of the architect of apartheid in Rose's native South Africa, and the collision of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun’s escape submarine with Mount Rushmore and American Gothic. A political landscape told with the innocence of childhood reverie.

La paradoja en el centro: ritmos de la materia en el arte argentino de los años 60. Colección del Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires 
(The Paradox at the Center: Rhythms of Matter in Argentine Art of the ’60s (
Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires Collection))
Until July 30, 2017

Our collection exhibition focuses on a specific moment of rupture towards the late ’50s and early ’60s, when several artists on the Porteño scene began to expand traditional formats—while still endorsing them—through acts of material violence in search of new models that would initiate contemporary art in our country. It posits a displacement of canonical readings of this period by putting Lucio Fontana at the epicenter of this material seismic shift. The exhibition, curated by Javier Villa, includes foundation stones of the Moderno´s collection, acquired by the Museum’s first two directors, Rafael Squirru and Hugo Parpagnoli (1963–1970) with works by Alberto Greco, Marta Minujín and Jorge de la Vega, among many others.

Pirovano Collection Episodes. Episode 2: Vitullo/Iommi: Evoking the Past, Projecting the Future
Until July 30, 2017

The exhibition delves into the potential of sculpture through two key artists in Ignacio Pirovano´s Collection donated to the Museo de Arte Moderno in 1980–81, Enio Iommi and Sesostris Vitullo, highlighting the tension between Iommi’s research into concrete abstract art and Vitullo’s exploration of the primitive imaginaries of modern art.
