Centro Cultural San Martin

Since 2001, Juan Batalla has been involved in the Argentine art scene as an artist and curator. Always concerned with the interdisciplinary, his work navigates religion, contemporary art, and the humanities, with a special interest in African artistic expressions. His recent exhibition, “Planetario,” reflected the spirit of primitive forms in the service of the sacred, combining his well-known rubber sculptures (he has said that they act as “memorials,” keeping track of time and the personal, unique, and irreplaceable imprint) with a video installation of abstract images (similar to an equalizer), assemblages, and photographs.…see the entire review in the print version of July/August’s Sculpture magazine.
