Sicardi Gallery will present Un tournant, an exhibition that pairs sculptures by Martha Boto, Horacio Garcia Rossi and Gregorio Vardanega with rare works on paper from the 1950s and 1960s by Antonio Asis and Hugo de Marziani.

Featuring works by artists from Argentina who were based in Paris from the 1950s on, Un tournant takes the physical movement of rotation as a metaphor for the visual and social revolutions that were underway during the decades of the 1960s and 1970s. As artists engaged more and more with the implications of machines, the space race, and the effects of space and time upon the art object, the undercurrent of social revolution was simultaneously bubbling just under the surface.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 29.
