Exhibition and historic account of the private association "Asociación Amigos del Arte (AAA)", the most important private art institution of the first half of the 20th century in Argentina and for the last decades largely ignored by art historians. Described as a "space destined for art exhibitions administered by a group from the 'Landowner's oligarchy', a high-class institution derived from the social status of the majority of its members", the AAA was founded with the main purpose of contributing with the work and material well-being of the local artists and to facilitate the access to the Argentinean society of the diverse artistic world-wide production spanning from Pre-Columbian to the diverse contemporary expressions: the traditional and the avant-garde, the nationalism and cosmopolitan movements. The exhibition revisits the social and artistic impact and cultural contributions of the AAA and presents close to 100 works by famous artists including Fernando Fader, Cesáreo Bernaldo de Quirós, Ernesto de la Cárcova, Pedro Figari, Emilio Pettoruti, Raúl Soldi, Antonio Berni, Juan Del Prete, Xul Solar, Raquel Forner and Alfredo Guttero, amongst others; complemented with period photographs, printed material, films, recordings, posters, and numerous newspaper and magazine clips.
