El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes presents the work of artists honored by the 2020/21 edition of the National Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Art, within the framework of the National Salon of Visual Art; this award recognizes the careers and contributions of Argentina’s greatest creative talents.
Curated by the Artistic Director of Bellas Artes, Mariana Marchesi, and exhibited in rooms 37-40 on the museum’s first floor, this show highlights the work of Anahí Cáceres, Alicia Herrero, Leandro Katz, Alina Neyman, Luis Pazos, Alfredo Prior, Norberto Puzzolo and Dalila Puzzovio, all of which will now become part of the Permanent Collection, enriching new perspectives on contemporary artistic production and fostering dialogue with the Bellas Artes archive.
In response to the exhibit, the curator writes, “Grounded in aesthetic choices that have shaped personal and heterogenous poetics, the pieces exhibited in this show offer a journey through the Argentine art scene from the 1960’s to the present day. Some of these works challenge cannon or reflect on different genres and artistic practice. Others explore how to create avenues of expression for local views, to reconsider the connection between the region’s past and present, or to express social and political conflicts that have impacted Argentina and Latin America”.
