More than 20 artists participate in “MUNTREF Collection – CHAPTER I”, a group show at Muntref, in Argentina until October 23rd.
Fragility and solidity, evanescence and resistance, transience and permanence, are aspects that are read expressively through the materials chosen by each artist to carry out their work -light, gauze, lace, ink, prints, paper, leather, wood, stones, metals, wires-. It was chosen to inhabit this selection of works – some more linked to the problems of contemporary migration, others more linked to existential questions – in the headquarters of the old Hotel de Inmigrantes, putting them in tension with this unique site that inevitably connotes them. In this way, contemporary art offers a fragmented account of aspects of our present that will be resignified from the perspective of each one of those who come to the rooms to think about a continuous present., without leaving aside, of course, the layers of stories that reside in them, since as we know (with Walter Benjamin): images have more of a past and future than those who look at them….
