Romina Pernigotte Exhibition "Nuevas Narrativas Tangueras (The New Tango Narratives)"

  Mar 20 (Mon.) to Apr. 20 (Thu.), 2023  [Free admission]


The series "New Tango Narratives" intertwines tango dance and visual arts.
The visual and the corporal, the individual and the collective, combine to give rise to the theme addressed in this graphic series. Movement, line and color are the inquiry tools in this search.

The images are permeated by the art of luthiery as a symbol of deconstruction of this historical moment. The luthier disassembles the bandoneon with love, to restore what is valuable and discard the obsolete parts that no longer work in the gear. Today, in the same way, a large part of the tango community activates and transits that sieve that motorizes the validity of the tango genre.
The drawings embrace primary communication through physical contact and the body dialogue of tango dance. Scenes emerge about the poetic modes of interaction and play between tango dancers and musicians in the heart of the tango machine, the milonga.

Through the images a tango worldview is built in which the musical instruments do not resist, they are willing to disarm, they surrender to listening, to fusion with other bodies. They open up to otherness and the possibility, necessary and urgent, of resilience, empathy and transformation.

Collective work from dance, pedagogical practices with a gender perspective together with colleagues and graphic production are, in my daily life, the great transformation device. Through affectionate and free tango embraces, where the traditional roles are blurred, to give way to a dialogued dance.

In recent times, urban landscapes discovered from the isolation and rescue of relegated iconic forces have appeared.

The New Tango Narratives invite you to feel and think about tango from other logics. To rewrite history, giving new meaning to legacies, making healthy ruptures and deepening a genuine, empowered lineage of tango that is in the making.

■ This exhibition is considered of interest for the promotion of Argentine culture abroad by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship - Directorate of Cultural Affairs.
