The Talking Walls of Buenos Aires opened at The Fridge Gallery DC on the 13th of July, 2013. The exhibition featured works from 21 urban artists from Buenos Aires’s graffitimundo. The history of public art and urban art in Buenos Aires is politically charged and of enormous social significance. This exhibition showcased works from the leading artists of a generation, who have used the city walls as a channel for their creative energies. Their artwork encompasses abstract forms, vibrant colours and elaborate graphic and figurative compositions. The works are unified through a sense of anarchy and discord, whether it be through unconventional techniques, the subversion of expectations, or the incorporation of polemic subject matter. The exhibition offered a glimpse into the collective creative conscious of Buenos Aires, and gave visitors a counterpoint to conventional styles and themes present in North American urban art.

Inevitably a show will be sold out or unpredictable weather conditions may throw a wrench in the itinerary. Rarely do we conceive of the possibility that we will be unable to visit ANY of the galleries on our list.
