Miami to Buenos Aires
Miami-based Argentinian artist Agustina Woodgate opened a site-specific interactive work, “GPS/Poetic Social Geometry,” at the Faena Arts Center, a historic flour mill-turned-arts center in Buenos Aires. Her debut solo exhibition in her birthplace stages environments within the FAC as well as direct interventions into the city and its residents through public projects, including a version of “Hopscotch” with 1,692 hand-painted squares (similar to her 2013 project surrounding the perimeter of the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach).
