Argentine artist, critic and teacher Luis Felipe Noé demonstrates the continued relevance of his work with this new exhibition, which focuses on the transformative options that Noé has championed over more than half a century, and which he developed through his “aesthetic of chaos”, where echos of the past appear in the present and project into the future. Curated by Cecilia Ivandevich, it's the ideal exhibition for those interested in "unravelling processes of evolution”.
This is the first exhibition in Argentina dedicated to US photographer Diane Arbus (1923-1971), one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. In the Beginning focuses on the first seven years of her career, exhibiting more than 100 photos taken between 1956 and 1962, when Arbus sought to find the "divineness in ordinary things". It's curated by Jeff L. Rosenheim from The Met.
