Fabrice Gygy, Lang/Baumann, Josep-Maria Martín and Gianni Motti, some of the most distinguished artist of the international contemporary art scene, participate in a public encounter on Thursday January 20 at Proa’ s Auditorium. Most of these artist, will visit Buenos Aires for the first time in occasion of Of Bridges & Borders, the exhibition who will open next Saturday January 22.
The artists will dialogue with Sigismond de Vajay, exhibition curator, on the processes of work production and the diverse formats they use: installation, sculpture and minimal objects, performances, site-specific and multidisciplinary projects. Beyond the diverse subjects they tackle, their non-traditional processes break from the idea of the artist trapped in his studio.
Of Bridges & Borders is an art project who started with an homonymous publication that assembled important artists, musicians, architects and intellectuals from 17 different countries, in order to account for –in words of de Vajay, curator for the exhibition and editor of the publication- “a global and contemporary memory”. In this new stage, Of Bridges & Borders adopts the form of an itinerant exhibition. Its first exhibition will take place at Proa from January 22. Besides Gygi, Lang/Baumann, Martín y Motti, the exhibition will also present artists Thomas Hirschhorn, Carlos Garaicoa, John Bock and Jorge Macchi.
