This year, we at OC are in pursuit of All things argentinean, so it only made complete sense to whip by the Consulate of Argentina for its new group exhibition, Rama Caída. The show's name means "fallen branch" in Spanish, and is also a Selena song as well as the name of a place in Argentina. Which potential allusion does the show’s title activate? Visit the exhibition to decide for yourself!
Put together by Rosario Güiraldes, Rama Caída is the first group show of 2012 for the Argentinan curatorial project Peña, and features works by a number of the country's artists—Lorenzo Bueno, Maximiliano Ferro, Julián Gatto, Valeria Poggio, Nicolás Sarmiento, Geraldine Schwindt, Santiago Villanueva, and the curator, Rosario Güiraldes. A snapshot of the youth art scene in Argentina, the gallery holds an assortment of photographs, sculptures, drawings, paintings, as well as mixed media pieces (including a series of photographs on a T-shirt).
