abstract

The presence of Argentinian art at Venice Biennale was hosted for the first time in 1901, and then in 1903 and 1922. Argentina, not owning a building at the Giardini venue, showed its artists in the Central Pavilion, in collective or solo exhibitions, since when in 1972 the Argentinian artists took part at the newly founded Latin American Pavilion. In 2011 an arrangement was set to give it a space – finally the Argentina Pavilion – in the Sale d’Armi at the Arsenale. Other important presences were for instance, Lucio Fontana, Nicolás Garcia Uriburu, Oscar Bony and León Ferrari, who was awarded as Best Artist in Biennale during 2007. In conclusion, a comparison is carried out between some significant examples in the lagoon event, up to the most recent participants of last years.
