The exhibition focuses on a moment of rupture towards the late '50s and early '60s, when several artists began to expand traditional formats through acts of material violence that initiated contemporary art in Argentina. It posits a displacement of canonical readings of this period by putting Lucio Fontana, one Argentine artist absent from the collection, at the epicenter of this material seismic shift. The exhibition, curated by Javier Villa, includes works by Alberto Greco, Aldo Paparella, Kenneth Kemble, Rubén Santantonín, Federico Manuel Peralta Ramos, Marta Minujín, Jorge de la Vega, and Luis Felipe Noé, among others.
