(Buenos Aires, Argentina) The artist Isabela Couto was selected for the Epecuen Residency, in which she produced works with the purpose of thinking the ruin as a contemporary paradigm for poetic constructions surrounding the fragmentary.

(Turin, Italy) The exhibition “Brasil !” intends to “focus on the latest generations of Brazilian artists who have marked a turning point and outlined, in the international scene, new routes and new paths, posing as a real school and current”, as explained in the curatorial text by Elisa Ravazzolo Botner.
