Figurations:  Figure, to figure, figurative, words from the same root which allude to images not completely defined, or displayed without much reason or usurping the place of reality. The proposal was for each artist to approach the subject from his/her own universe, to create a new one by gathering and showing the results of that conceptual exploration in the space of the exhibition.  

The scope ranges from expressions of very intimate ghosts to proposals which frankly appeal to the active gaze of others; from Chinese shadows to anchors for staying on course when confronting menacing dreams: figurations presented by more than sixty artists in an exhibition rich in formal, material and conceptual research.   On this occasion, Joyeros Argentinos wanted to share the experience with our trans-Andean colleagues. The Chilean Association of Contemporary Jewelry “Joya Brava” accompanies us in this regional adventure, to present jointly for the first time this exhibition at the Museo de Arte Popular José Hernández of the city of Buenos Aires.
