The Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires, better known as Moderno inaugurated yesterday, in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art (MMK) from Frankfurt, one of the largest exhibitions that has taken place: Historia de dos mundos (Tale of two worlds). The exhibition, which can be held in the framework of the reopening of the Moderno, is made up of more than five hundred works and a hundred artists, including some collectives, and it will be possible until October 14th.
Based on a joint curatorship of Victoria Noorthoorn - Director of Modernism, Javier Villa and Klaus Görner - curator of the MMK -, the selection of works of History of the Worlds includes Latin American artists, such as North Americans and Europeans. The exhibition of a huge dimension and will occupy all the rooms of the new modern, which has doubled in size.
Conceived from a Latin American perspective, the exhibition proposes a dialogue between the works of Western European and North American art of the mid-20th century, until the 90s, collection of the MMK, with the history of Latin American experimental art since 1944. -when they appear the Argentine vanguards - until the end of the military dictatorships in the 80s. The proposal has the purpose of representing and the dialogue about the reactions of art - of artists within their sociopolitical contexts.
Within this new perspective of the history of art, Latin American art appears with the intention of constituting a fraternal equality -which no longer excludes rivalry-, thus forming a global and diverse art on the one hand, combative and democratic by the other
Prior to this inauguration, the Stories of the Worlds were held at the MMK during the European winter 2017/18. In Buenos Aires, the exhibition was designed by Daniela Thomas and Felipe Tassara in collaboration with the Moderno team.
