ArteBA Style: ARTY MOOD


Este año, mi asistencia a la inauguración de ArteBA (la feria de arte más trascendente del país) consistió irremediablemente en una apurada recorrida. Por ende, una vorágine abrumadora de arte contemporáneo y personajes inquietos, de la cual sin embargo mis sensores rescataron dos experiencias fundamentales: las fabulosas obras de Julio Le Parc y mi encuentro con Marta Minujín, una de las artistas plásticas más eminentes y prolíficas de Argentina.
Llamada alguna vez la Lady Gaga del arte local, la polifacética artista fue una de las impulsoras del movimiento de arte visual Pop Art y varias de sus impactantes obras hicieron historia, como sus esculturas de arte efímero, sus happenings, performances y ambientaciones multisensoriales de arte participativo.

This year, my attendance at the opening of ArteBA -the most important art fair in the country- was hopelessly a hurry visit. Thus, an overwhelming maelstrom of contemporary art and restless characters, of which my sensors only rescued two basic experiences: the great works of Julio Le Parc and my meeting with Marta Minujín, one of the most prominent and prolific Argentinian plastic artists.
Once called the Lady Gaga of local art, the multifaceted artist was one of the promoters of the visual art movement Pop Art, and several of her impressive works made ​​history, as the sculptures of ephemeral art, happenings, performances and multisensorial environments of participatory art.

Textures, Mondrian pattern & bold ethnic bijoux

Melena albina de corte rectilíneo y gafas de sol como maquillaje permanente son la contundente firma de estilo de esta excéntrica reina del arte pop, divertida y singular hasta para vestirse. Con su peculiar estilo (mezcla inefable de overoles y prendas avant-garde de impronta warholiana junto a accesorios kistch, profusas piezas ornamentales y bijouterie de diversa -y a veces, insospechada- procedencia), Minujín reafirma esa vocación de unir cada aspecto de su vida al sentido artístico.

Albino hair cut straight and sunglasses as permanent makeup are the strong signature style of this eccentric queen of pop art, amusing and unique even to dress. With her peculiar style -ineffable mixture of overalls and Warholian, avant-garde clothing with kitsch extras, profuse decorative pieces and jewelry of various (and sometimes unexpected) source-, Minujín reaffirms that vocation to join every aspect of her life to the artistic sense.
