Arte x Arte...


Photography and painting meet at an exhibition where the limits between them seem to blend. Where? At Galería Arte x Arte. Name of the exhibition? In fraganti. Curator Valeria Gonzalez places a painting next to a photo to demonstrate that there's no sense in thinking only in terms of painting  or photography: we don't have to put definitions to the arts. So the exhibition proposes a new experience where the frontiers between the works fade out.

Among the many artists on display, there's two works by Sofía Bohtlingk. In one of them, we see how an object is created through monochromy, a process captured on video.

On the top floor of the gallery, a work by Esteban Pastorino enhances the friction between photography and other mechanisms used by visual arts. As we look through the antique camera, we see landscapes belonging to the city of Buenos Aires.
