11/21/16 - OJO (eye) is Argentine artist Marcia Schvartz's vision of our reality which, curated by Roberto Amigo, can be seen at the Colección Fortabat Museum. An  eye that sees it all, even what we can not: our dramas, sexuality, the mysteries of life, all in images Schvartz recreates in a hard way. It's not a portrait of the universal man, but only of those who live here, those with the cultural and social identity of Argentina.

In La Lista (The list), Marcia depicts a burned-out thirty-something who still has things to finish in her to-do list. The artist wonders if it is possible to achieve what we desire without being slaved by our daily chores. The piece of paper on the painting could also be a survival list which includes the budget to make it to the end of the month.

Visitors are left breathless as they face a reality they do not wish to see. The second floor of the exhibition is less severe. There, she displays a series of ceramics representing all kinds of flowers. Sexuality is also present here in pieces that, at first sight, seem innocent portrayals of Nature
Erizo, by Marcia Schvartz (1994)
Technique: watercolor on paper / Measures: 28 x 37 cm
Schvartz is a true example of a contemporary artist and this is an exhibition of what we really are.
