Video: Friendship and Cosmopolitanism in Argentine Art and Literature

In conjunction with Xul Solar and Jorge Luis Borges: The Art of Friendship, contributors to the exhibition’s catalogue will examine the creation of a cosmopolitan movement in the midst of the cultural effervescence occurring within Buenos Aires in the 1920s. The panel will touch upon the development of a distinct local identity informed by the European avant-garde, which was epitomized by the friendship between artist Xul Solar and writer Jorge Luis Borges.
