What: Bringing Shadows to Light: Contemporary Argentine Photography

"Selected photographs of, by, and about Argentine citizens reveal how subjective experience in the wake of political trauma, personal regeneration, and globalization are explored in countless ways. With humor, nostalgia, bitterness, and ambiguity, the photographs address issues related to the Malvinas/Falklands war, unemployment, the Dirty War, the tango, and the intensifying presence of imported American products and foreign industries.

"Many of the artists featured in Bringing Shadows to Light question the relationship between national events and personal memory by examining the relationship between subjective experience and the vagaries of 'objective' history."

Just in case, what these guys are doing is waiting to have sex with a prostitute, maybe for first world eyes it can look like a line for voting or something, but no, it's just (very) cheap sex. Gil is an excellent photographer, do you know the other's names?

No, all I know is that my favorite Argentine photographer is not represented in the show.
