This exhibition gathers nearly 90 paintings, drawings, illustrations, photographs, publications and documents from the first years of Jorge Gumier Maier's career (1953-2021), curated by researcher Natalia Pineau.
“Gumier Maier was a central figure of contemporary Argentine culture: artist, curator, cultural agitator, dissident activist, thinker, journalist and writer, among many other activities that he explored and that led him to be a lucid interpreter of his time", highlights the director of the Museum, Andrés Duprat.
This exhibition covers his early work, developed between 1978 and 1989, before his extraordinary management in the gallery of the Rojas Cultural Center, which involved a renewal of the visual arts in the 90s.
The works at display include artworks that the artist made under the influence of avant-garde movements, such as surrealism and artists like Jean Dubuffet, Libero Badii and René Magritte. The visitor can also see a series of works starring male subjects, created at the end of the 1980s, which recover aspects of the metaphysical painting of Giorgio de Chirico or Lino Enea Spilimbergo: distant horizons, exacerbated and refuted perspectives.
