Banco Ciudad will once again be part of arteBA, showing works by Marcos López and announcing the acquisition of 56 works by renowned artist
Banco Ciudad continues to support art in all its forms and chooses arteBA as the space par excellence in which to share its patrimony and its plans. On this ocasion it were exhibit two series of 24 works by Argentine photogapher Marcos López: The first is a bold project in which he portrays bank employees, clerks, and officials both at work and in private life; the second series also refers to an institutional theme, portraying agents in various places in the city created and restored under its present administration. These photographic series have been included in the memory and stocktaking of the years 2010 and 2011 at Banco Ciudad.
One of the major new developments of the year for Argentina’s cultural heritage has been the acquisition by Banco Ciudad of an exceptional group of 56 works of paintings and sculptures by renowned artists – the great majority of them Argentines – which over two decades ago were part of a foreign private collection. The works span both the first decades of the last century, and contemporary artists: among others, Petorutti (his first cubist work), Berni, Xul Solar, Victorica, Lacámera, Quinquela, Spilimbergo, and Torres García. The return to Argentina of these works reaffirms the Banco Ciudad’s commitment to art, and the preservation, defense, and recovery of cultural sovereignty.
