ART IS EDUCATION

Welcome to the Museo Moderno’s 2024 Programme!

Arte es educación [Art is Education] is a concept we will be developing throughout the year in course. The reasons for choosing this focus are twofold. First, we feel it is important to affirm the value of this public museum – reliant on the Ministry of Culture of the Buenos Aires City Government – which has been devoted for 68 years to theoretical and practical research and to raising the profile of Argentinian art of its day, while working shoulder to shoulder with the artists who are the inspiration behind the very existence of this home of Argentinian art. We also want to make this pool of decades of research available to every one of our visitors, while bringing visibility to the knowledge being developed by the Museum around the link between art and education, an area that, today, situates the Museo Moderno at the forefront of museums in Argentina and Latin America.

The Museo Moderno is committed to a pedagogy of wonder, where learning goes hand in hand with experimentation and play, and to developing an experience grounded in the enjoyment, surprise, curiosity or pain awakened by the works of great Argentinian artists. It is our conviction that art is a vehicle for knowledge that enables us to encourage observation, questioning and critical thinking about our reality and ourselves. We are working to bring art to the most diverse audiences through active participation to foster a culture of belonging, of being-in-art. We love to think of the museum as a poetic shelter and public service, a place to return to again and again, a healthy space to inspire the imagination and a catalyst for individual and collective well-being.

On this road, we at the Moderno are passionate about thinking and working with the heterogeneous socio-environmental realities and the physical and psychological conditions that inform our diverse community, as well as about devising and developing a broad spectrum of exhibitions and artists’ workshops, tours and activities, inside and outside the Museum, in local neighbourhoods, the city and the rest of the country.

We invite you to enjoy our Museum, always alive and dynamic and in constant dialogue with society, and we hope you will always come back to visit us and join the big family that is the Museo Moderno. To find out more about our Museum, we suggest you subscribe to our website www.museomoderno.org and follow us at @modernoba. Thanks for joining us!

In the face of adversity, art always allows us to question the future. Utopia, imagination and fiction provide us with the poetic and conceptual tools that have been used by societies to improve the conditions of their existence.

Artist and writer Martín Legón (Buenos Aires, 1978) has developed his work in a succession of exhibitions and publications that take as a point of departure the image far removed from its usual circulation and from its most traditional reading.

Much of the artistic production of Javier Soria Vázquez (Cafayate, 1975) consists of the creation of concepts and designs for works that are to be materialised by other people. In the past, many discussions of art have revolved around authorship and the paradigm that the originality of a work stems from its creation by the artist’s hand. However, modern and contemporary art have broken down this barrier and involve not only other artists but the viewer in the execution of a work.
