40 Years of Uninterrupted Democracy - Special Project

Curator Irene Gelfman

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade, and Worship of the Argentine Republic, the Consulate General and Promotion Center of Argentina in Miami, in collaboration with Arte al Día Internacional and the Pinta Fair, promote Argentine commercial and artistic openness on the international stage. In 2022, the project "Emerging Argentine Artists" was presented, where 10 artists were selected to showcase their works during the Pinta Miami fair.

This year, in celebration of 40 years of uninterrupted democracy in Argentina, Renata Molinari, a participating artist from the previous edition, is invited to present a site-specific project revolving around the ideas of freedom, acquired rights, and democracy.


About Renata Molinari

I was born in Buenos Aires, where I currently live, in 1996. I studied Physical Sciences at UBA for two years, and in 2016, I started the Bachelor's degree in Visual Arts at UNA, which I completed in 2020. In 2019, I participated in the Artist Program at the Di Tella University, which extended until mid-2021.
I attended courses, seminars, and workshops with numerous artists, curators, and managers, including Valentina Liernur, Pablo Siquier, Franco Castignani, Flavia da Rin, Nicanor Aráoz, Nancy Rojas, Guillermo Ueno, Alan Courtis, Lara Marmor, Lucrecia Palacios, Roberto Amigo, Miguel A. Lopez, Carlos Huffmann, Silvina Babich, Alejandro Taantanian, Max Gomez Canle, Manuel Aja Espil, Hector Meana, Luis Terán.
In 2020, I was selected to participate in the Gasworks residency in London through the URRA Project in collaboration with Fundación ArteBa. The residency took place in 2022. In 2021, I received the Creation Grant from the National Arts Fund.
My works have been exhibited at the Klemm Foundation (Klemm Prize), Recoleta Cultural Center (Young Art Biennial), San Martín Cultural Center, Kirchner Cultural Center, among other national and municipal institutions. I participated in the Arteba fairs in 2020 and 2021, and the Microferia Rosario. In 2021, I held my first solo exhibition, "Humor Vítreo," at the Media gallery in Buenos Aires.


Working through painting, sculpture, and performance, I explore the blurred boundaries between categories such as the living and the inert, the artificial and the natural, the body and the object. My practice uses elements of fantasy, speculative fiction, and trans-species imaginaries to delve into visions of alternate worlds.
