THE FUTURE IS NOT NOW WHAT IT WAS
Buenos Aires City.
Curator: Rodrigo Alonso
This exhibition proposes to explore the cultural technological collective imagination that goes through art and society showing emblematic productions of the last hundred years. These productions are organized in specific thematic groups. Therefore, the main objective is to create an atmosphere which leads to a reflection not about the future but about the present and its open perspectives.
The model of the Tower for the Americas Fair made in Mendoza, Argentina, in 1953 and designed by Cesar Janello, Gerardo Clusellas and Mauricio Kagel, is presented as a paradigm of development of the Argentinean industry, main axis of the thematic related to progress. This tower was a real artistic production at the vanguard of ‘Arte Concreto’.
