Tracey Rose solo exhibition at the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires

Tracey Rose will open her first solo exhibition in Argentina at The Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires on 15 December 2016, running until 12 March 2017. In Tracey Rose: Toro Salvaje (Wild Bull), the artist constructs a chaotic playground in the museum, which, according to ArtPR, operates as an “analysis of the subterranean crossroads of the Argentine dictatorship’s political legacy, the assassination of the architect of apartheid in Rose’s native South Africa, and the collision of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun’s escape submarine with Mount Rushmore and American Gothic. A political landscape told with the innocence of childhood reverie.”
