STRANGE THNIGS IN CÓRDOBA
It wanders satisfied around the borders of the global mainstream fairs circuit, Mercado de Arte Contemporáneo – Córdoba, an annual event that brings together a set of galleries, collectives and collections in the second most important city in Argentina.
In the mood for an urgent fair, from now and here (in relation to Latin America, countries such as Brazil, Bolivia or Peru - this 2018 special guest) this kind of creation bomb - without going any further the first night had to close because of an artifact denounced as explosive – had as general curator the urban artist Elian Chali and, with epicenter in the urban center, Plaza San Martin and Cabildo, it got into the organs of the whole city – as if it were the “demogorgón” that lives in the upsidedown-city of Stranger Things.
Among all the museums, galleries and alternative spaces that got contagious, this article pretends to highlight the 220CC, a place that is articulated by one of the biggest show business agency of the southern cone, with its most artistic and underground aspect. First conducted by the artist Agustina Palazzo, today the captain is Sol Mosquera and her shocking red head that works as a kind of “Eleven” of the team.

Her trajectory is crossed by a laboriousness that we could appreciate in works like her series nests, and that do not depart from the materiality of the elements since then and up to the present when rhythm, order and harmony are still present. This artist who goes through the debates of the exhibition as she seeks a contemporary reconciliation for the tension that art has described between matter and concept, must also be highlighted by her work on the feminine condition in art, starting from nests, homes and eggs until
the present when rhythm, order and harmony continue to be present. This artist who goes through the debates of the exhibition as she seeks a contemporary reconciliation for the tension that art has described between matter and concept, must also be highlighted by her work on the feminine condition in art, starting from nests, homes and eggs until to abstract nowadays towards a more geometric paradigm that continues to have a sonorous, warm and vital reference.-
