From the ashes, this is how the ECA resurfaced

You can visit the renovated Contemporary Art Space (ECA), a place that pays homage to many artists in Mendoza.

Art and Literature

With a tribute to referents who revolutionized the local scene and positioned the province in the order of artistic creation, the new  ECA   offers a luxury area for the visual arts.  In addition to the impressive building, you can enjoy the exhibition  of more than 200 works by more than 65 artists from Mendoza, Buenos Aires and Chile  .The exhibition Encuentración de Arte Figurativo is carried out by the Ministry of Culture, in co-production with Revista Ophelia.

During the opening, the  name was officially imposed on the emblematic building, in tribute to the great Mendoza artist Eliana Molinelli  and 12 local referents, in each room. 

The ones in charge of starting the opening were Natasha and Tania Driban Molinelli, daughters of Mendoza sculpture , who said: “We just want to thank everyone for being here and thank, from here the deserved tribute to our mother, who is in heaven.” The artists recognized for the ECA rooms are Luis Quesada, José Scacco, Marcelo Santangelo, Roberto Azzoni, Orlando Pardo, Sara Rosales, Selva Vega, Ángel Gil, José Bermudez, Antonio Sarelli, Raúl Castromán and Dardo Retamozza. 

Sara Rosales, one of the  artists  honored, said: “I receive this recognition with great joy, as a caress. It is a  space that will be for all the young and talented artists that our province has , who come with increasingly interesting proposals, impossible to encasel and that reflect absolute artistic freedom.”

A space for the public and for artists

In what was a real meeting of artists, cultural makers and the general public, the Secretary of Culture, Diego Gareca, commented that “it is a great joy to share this reopening with the artistic community and all Mendoza.  We have done an important restoration of the ECA and we are very happy with the work on stained glass windows, moldings, electrical installation, painting, flooring and material recycling in basements and rooms . We leave today enabled a space, which adds to the rest of those that the Ministry of Culture has, to give more options, both artists who wish to exhibit and to the public to tour.”

In turn, Maria Laura Tinte, coordinator of the ECA, stressed that “It is a very important day for all Mendoza artists, because we have been working very responsibly to recover this beautiful space for all Mendoza”.
