Each year since 2015, BAphoto pays homage to one photographer who has demonstrated active and outstanding participation in the field of Argentine photography, with the purpose of recuperating and elevating their figure within the local art-history. Lucrecia Plat, who participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions, is the artist who will be honored in this year’s edition of BAphoto
Since 2015, Wunderkammer has been the fair’s established sector for heritage photography, aiming to highlight the work of different agents who specialize in recovering and adding value to photographic material of a historical and documentary nature.
Fuera de Foco is a sector of solo projects that is thoroughly committed to the exploration of the different procedures, languages and materials especially enabled by the photographic medium’s unique qualities. With the aim of making the work of new generations of artists visible, Fuera de Foco invites four galleries to each present an individual, an installation and an experimental proposal, and combines them to promote a space open for cross-disciplinary dialogue that generates new aesthetic experiences and enriches understanding of the art form.
Invited Artist: Silvia Rivas (Rolf Gallery)
Placing the body at the center of experience to provide a different, strange look on everyday life.
Rivas stops to poeticize that moment prior to an event, a decision, to then analyze both its fragility and its power to change everything.
