We will jump right into the heart of the exhibition, dedicated to the world-renowned contemporary British artist Anish Kapoor. With artworks spanning from 1992 to 2019, the exhibition shows a large diversity of his most emblematic series, as well as materials used (wax, stone, pigment and steel), going from the monumental “Svayambhu” made with bold red wax to the astonishingly subtle “When I am pregnant” wich seems to fade in the distance, or even his mirrored-steel sculptures that distort the spectator’s spatial perception. We will get to experience first-hand Kapoor’s visual explorations of what is not completely given to the eye: the void, the in-betweens, the incipient. All along the way, we will also share with you Proa’s fascinating history in the La Boca neighborhood. From its creation 20 years ago to the recent opening of Proa21, its brand new place dedicated to experimental art and research, Proa has always been related to Caminito’s history of art and culture. To finish our tour, we will share a drink and bite at the Café Proa and enjoy a panoramic view of the Riachuelo and the landmark Transbordador bridge from its rooftop.
Our names are Noemí, Cora, Pilar and Gastón. We are a team with true passion for modern and contemporary art. As part of Fundación Proa's staff, we hold art history degrees, and have been doing guided tours of big international exhibitions for years: Duchamp, Giacometti, Malevich, Ai Weiwei, to name a few. In order to prepare for the ongoing exhibition dedicated to Anish Kapoor, we did an in-depth study of his life and work. We are very excited to share our perspective with our visitors. We will be happy to welcome you to Proa for a journey across one of the most emblematic art centers in Argentina.
