Contradiction and Continuity emphasizes crucial historical moments and aesthetic movements in Argentina in which photography had a critical role, producing, and at other times dismantling, national constructions, utopian visions, and avant-garde artistic trends.

About

The exhibition examines the complexities of Argentina over the past 150 years, stressing the heterogeneity of its realities, the creation of contradictory histories, and the power of constructed photographic images in the configuration of a national imaginary. With significant works dating from the decade of Argentina’s first constitution to the bicentennial of its independence, the exhibition will include almost 300 photographs representing the work of more than sixty artists.
