Imán: Nueva York

Exchanges between the art scenes of Buenos Aires and New York in the 1960s. Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires, July - Sept. 2010.
Sep 2010

Artistic production in the 1960s looked to New York. The center for the development of visual arts during the second half of the 20th century, the American city attracted many artists whose interests had flowed through Europe - birthplace of the historic avant-gardes - and went to live in the Big Apple, epicenter of change and experimentation.

From 24 July - 30 September 2010, Fundación Proa presented Imán: Nueva York, a historic exhibition curated by Rodrigo Alonso that brought together the productions of prominent local artists. Pieces, projects, documents, books and photographs reconstructed a period of crucial interchanges for the visual consciousness of that time, in which many Argentine artists traveled to New York while Buenos Aires also entertained curators and artists.
