Rolf Art presents an exhibition project that brings together three outstanding Argentine artists: a historical proposal by Sara Facio (b. 1932), a fundamental figure in Argentine photography who has actively contributed to the development of the medium at a national and international level; a contemporary proposal by renowned artist Marcelo Brodsky (b. 1954), whose consolidated work is profoundly affected by and committed to human rights and memory; and a disruptive proposal presented by Andrés Denegri (b. 1975), a young visual artist with an important career in the field of contemporary audiovisual: expanded cinema, exposed cinema.
The project bets on a large-format film installation, from the series Éramos esperados (We were expected) by Andrés Denegri, where the complex machinery projects different images from the national archive generating conceptual montages; together with the emblematic series "Perón 1972-1974" by Sara Facio, which records the social events linked to the development of Peronism during the early years of the 1970s in Argentina; in dialogue with the iconic series "1968: El Fuego de las Ideas" by Marcelo Brodsky that reformulates and updates the existing visual materials of different political manifestations around the world. Through a sensitive approach, the exhibited works reconstruct national identity and its symbolic universe from different approaches, registering massive acts of denunciation and memory.
