Argentine artist displays ‘Storytelling’
Argentine artist Pedro Roth will come to the Point of Contact Gallery, 914 E. Genesee St., Syracuse, on Thursday, Nov. 19, from 6-9 p.m. to attend the opening reception for his exhibition “Storytelling … an experiment in visual narrative.” The event is free and open to the public. The exhibition will run through Feb. 4, 2010.
For this rich display of drawings that is a development of the work he’s just presented at two solo exhibitions in Buenos Aires, “Roth invents a world of multiple figures, drawn to life in a Buenos Aires café while listening to stories about lost loves, departed pets and friends, and the refusal to go out and love again …” writes the show’s curator, Pedro Cuperman.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, raised in Buenos Aires, where he currently lives, Roth has exhibited extensively between Prague and Buenos Aires in venues such as the Laura Haber Gallery, Centro Cultural Borges and the Wussman Gallery, among others. His works can be found in collections of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA), Museo de Arte Contemporaneo Latinoamericano, La Plata (MACLA); Jewish Museum of Prague; Museo de Bellas Artes de Azul, Provincia de Buenos Aires, Museo Contemporaneo de Santa Fe (MAC); and the Jewish Museum of Buenos Aires.
