THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS OF BUENOS AIRES PRESENTS AN INTERVIEW CYCLE WITH TEN GREAT ARGENTINE ARTISTS
The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Museum of Fine Arts) presents "Thoughts of an Artist", an original cycle of ten audiovisual interviews with relevant Argentine artists and backgrounds that will be available to the public on the institution's different digital platforms.
The cycle, an original production of Bellas Artes, includes in-depth dialogues with great artists who have left their mark on the visual history of the argentine country: Julio Le Parc, Juan Carlos Distéfano, Norberto Gómez, Sara Facio, Marie Orensanz, César Paternosto, Eduardo Stupía, Delia Cancela, Manuela Rasjido and Roberto Jacoby. The museum's public collection contains works by all these Argentine artists.
"This is a series of unpublished interviews, conducted by the Museum, with great Argentine artists who provide us with their vast experience, their reflections and their vision of art and artistic creation," explains the director of the Museum, Andrés Duprat.
“In this unprecedented context due to the pandemic, institutions must have special sensitivity and reinforce through social networks actions such as accompanying, entertaining and informing the public, who must remain at home for the common good. In that sense, today we make this interview cycle available”, he adds.
The videos of the “Thoughts of an Artist” cycle are available to the public on the Bellas Artes website, the institutional YouTube channel, and will be shared on all the Museum's social networks (Instagram, IGTV, Facebook and Twitter).
In these videos, the interviewees express their thoughts on various topics related to their profession, and answer questions such as what it means to be an artist or what is the link between art and politics, in addition to reflecting on topics such as artistic training, art criticism and the role of the spectator in front of the work.
