Group exhibitionFaena Art Buenos Aires
Auto Body depicts the body as language, creating a new polyphonic discourse of diverse actions and voices; on this stage, the body is a powerful vehicle for transcendence, movement and transformation. A curatorial committee - comprising Chana Budgazad Sheldon, Ximena Caminos, Tami Katz-Freiman and Brandi Reddick - selected 35 artists from the hundreds of nominations submitted by 26 international curators. With each new city to which Auto Body travels, a local curatorial committee selects works by local artists to be added to the show—continually fostering a new exchange of ideas and an international conversation on the political and economic inequalities of the art world and beyond.
The presentation of the piece at the Faena Art Center marked the project’s first international stop. The Argentine curatorial committee — Ximena Caminos, Larisa Zmud, curator and co-founder of the Slyzmud Gallery, and Vivi Tellas, independent curator and theater director — selected an additional nine native artists. The work occupied the entirety of the Sala Molinos in addition to public spaces around the Faena Art Center Buenos Aires.
