My Buenos Aires

Exhibition, La maison rouge, Paris, France, until 20 September

My Buenos Aires runs counter to the romantic vision of Buenos Aires. Visitors are offered neither a portrait of the city or a who’s who of Argentinean artists, but rather a sensation, an experience of the dynamics at work in the Argentine capital. With works by more than 60 artists working in all media, from installation to painting, sculpture, video, and photography, four generations are represented. Established names join those yet to be discovered, more than 15 of whom have made installations in situ. This is an invitation to plunge into the mystery of Buenos Aires without attempting to resolve it, and to experience the unsettling strangeness of its multiple personalities.
