The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Buenos Aires (MACBA) presents the exhibitions Trans Humo by Pablo La Padula and Flow Flow by Daniel Joglar.


Trans Humo by Pablo La Padula

The exhibition features installations in which one can observe the artist's work with three minimal elements: paper, glass and smoke. It proposes a journey from the informal beginnings of the use of smoke in the search for a personal grammar.


The human figure appears through self-portraits of smoke and its link with science is present with herbariums and alchemical cabinets of transilluminated glass. It is curated by Eduardo Stupía.


Flow Flow by Daniel Joglar

The artist's work is based on the genesis of space and the viewer's perception of it. The viewer is introduced to the experimentation and observation of a poetics of objects and their potentiality that have been stripped of their functionality and pose a reflection on the relationships established with them on a daily basis.  Flow Flow is curated by artist Pablo La Padula.
