Swish Swish

Centro Cultural Recoleta, Buenos Aires

In defiance of the symbolic nature of walls as borders, barriers between people and places, artists have used walls in public spaces as ready-made canvases upon which to design, create and spread messages of solidarity, rebellion and a refusal to conform.

The “Viral Mural” exhibition aims to show a series of vibrant and eye-catching large-format murals, and observes the phenomenon of viralisation as a contemporary manifestation. In a modern creative sphere that has evolved and adapted to a technological world, the works become vehicles of claims and opinions that infiltrate social networks, memes, tweets and viral actions.

The exhibition is held at Buenos Aires’ Recoleta Cultural Centre, a thriving hub of visual arts, performance works, workshops and art fairs that showcases work from young artists in the Argentinian capital.
