If you’re into shopping and want to get a bit of culture, then don’t forget to drop by Patio Bullrich this month. In anticipation of BAphoto a pop-up exhibit is set to open at the swanky Recoleta mall from 6-9 PM tomorrow evening, and will be on view through August 31st. 

The exhibition, La Espesura de lo Real, is curated by Argentine artist Francisco Medail and combines an array of Latin American photographers, such as US-born George Friedman. The idea behind la Espesura de lo Real is to establish new relationships with contemporary artists.

Manuel Fernández, one of the artists featured in the pop-up has said: “It is an exhibition that tried to reconstruct a tradition in the history of Argentine photography, through anachronistic gestures between contemporary works, trying to establish a line of continuity between Friedman and the generations of later artists. The objectives of the tributes are reinforced, since not only does it recover the figure of some forgotten artists in our history but also re-contextualizes them and inserts them into a broader field of senses.”

BAphoto was created in 2005 and is one of the most important photography fairs in Latin America. With more than a decade of experience, the fair promotes the development of photography within the artistic field and to encourage its value internationally.

And if you want to see more, BAphoto will be holding its fourteenth edition in Palermo, at expo center La Rural from September 7th-9th. (Plan your agenda carefully as Art Basel Cities and Feria Masticar will also be on that weekend!)

Diego Costa Peuser and Francisco Medail are curating the fourteenth edition, which aims to consolidate the development and promotion of the photographic medium – incorporating the work from a variety of different artists.
