Beyond the Ordinary: A Conversation with Three Conceptual Artists from Argentina


Museum Lecture Hall

During the 1960s and the 1970s, amid a tense political climate, the art scene in Argentina fostered a radical break with traditional forms giving rise to conceptual practices. The unconventional artistic production of this period often involved the employment of photography in highly experimental ways. Three of the leading artists of this period—Carlos Ginzburg, Luis Pazos, and Leandro Katz—discuss their work and their experiences with Idurre Alonso, co-curator of the exhibition Photography in Argentina, 1950–2010: Contradiction and Continuity.
