    Contradiction and Continuity: Photography Argentina 1850-2010

    March - May 2018
    Organized by The J. Paul Getty Museum
    Curator: Judy Keller, Idurre Alonso and Rodrigo Alonso
    Sponsors: Tenaris - Techint Organization

    A set of around 300 photographs throughout 200 years of history was the challenge that the curators of the Paul Getty Museum managed to unveil, bringing together an exhausted panorama of Argentine history, through photographic documentation and rescuing the talent of artists contemporaries.

    The exhibition examines the historical and political complexities in the country highlighting the heterogeneity of their realities, the creation of contradictory histories, and the power of the construction of images in the configuration of a national imaginary.
