Me conociste en un momento extraño de mi vida

Exhibition Opening & Vernissage
CCA elsewhere, Spanish, Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, 1 September 2023 to 6 October 2023

Me conociste en un momento extraño de mi vida is a research project conducted by Martin Huberman, Curator of the CCA c/o Buenos Aires program. The research offers an introspective look at architecture and the breadth of its scope during a critical period in Argentinian society, the aftermath of the 2001 political and economical crisis. The study revisits the ways in which the profession responded to a dramatic and hastened shift in the development tradition that seems to run deep through its veins. Rather than focus on compositional qualities, or on an idealized and biased representation of the local manifestations of recent building development, the project investigates the often invisible traits of architectural practice in Buenos Aires which, through habit or pure extravagance, are often excluded from the traditional narrative.

While Argentina seems to be approaching a new era of crisis, an extended version of this narrative will be presented at the School of Architecture of Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Buenos Aires. This exhibition examines the ways in which the architectural profession has adapted and reacted in order to be functional to the economic rebound characteristic of the post-crisis period.

The vernissage will be in Spanish
