The artist Agustina Woodgate is the only Argentine to participate in the Whitney Biennale 2019 that begins next May 17, organized by the same name museum in New York.

This is a prestigious exhibition that aims to take the pulse of the contemporary artistic moment of the continent, and will bring together works by 75 artists from various countries selected by curators Whitney Jane Panetta and Rujeko Hockley.

“The Whitney Biennale is an unmissable event for anyone interested in discovering what is happening in art today,” the institution says in a statement.

The exhibition, which aims to mark trends in contemporary art - as most artists are young - will bring together works in painting, sculpture, installation, film and video, photography, performance and sound.

Born in Buenos Aires in 1981 and resident in the United States and Holland, Agustina Woodgate proposes new landscapes through sculptural works, public interventions and social interactions.

In his works he investigates the ever-changing ecology and cartography which is urgently needed to evaluate the use of natural resources.
His works turn surplus material into new possibilities of perception and action.

The Whitney Biennial 2019 will be held in New York from May 17 to September 22 and will include works by artists from the United States, Thailand, Ghana, Morocco, Mexico, France, Germany, Kenya, England, Puerto Rico, Egypt and many others.

The biennial has been held since 1932 and there have been artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackson Pollock and Jeff Koons at the beginning.
