We have reached an unprecedented moment in planetary history.
Humans now arguably change the Earth and its processes more than all other natural forces combined. Climate change, extinctions, invasive species, technofossils, anthroturbation, terraforming of land, and redirection of water are all part of the indelible human signature.

Celebrated by media such as the New York Times, the Financial Times or Hyperallergic, this exhibition is an opportunity to see the work of Canadian artists for the first time in Argentina.

Fundación Proa presents the ANTHROPOCENE project, an exhibition by the great Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky for the first time in Argentina. Throughout the four rooms, monumental photographs, films by the artists Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier and murals are gathered to immerse yourself through augmented reality devices.

A contemporary exhibition that accounts for the new forms of art production and that focuses on the most current problem that makes us all responsible: caring for our planet.

The Anthropocene, the new geological era that is broadly defined by the results of human actions on earth, is a project that has involved years of research, production and development for photographers, documentarians and filmmakers who have been working together since approximately year 2006.

The exhibition is made up of photographs, videos and augmented reality pieces that document and seek to raise awareness about the impact of our actions on the environment.

According to the New York Times, “Long before the climate crisis was at the center of global concern, Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky traveled the world documenting what people have inflicted on the environment and, by extension, on themselves.”

Co-produced by the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), the Canadian Photographic Institute - dependent on the National Gallery of Canada (NGC) -, and the MAST Foundation of Bologna, Italy, this exhibition is the culmination of an ambitious collaborative artistic project , which includes a documentary feature film, two publications, an educational program, a podcast and this exhibition at Fundación PROA.
