Documenting concurrent exhibitions devoted to conceptual works by four established Argentine artists who have frequently addressed issues related to the country's repressive political heritage and its cultural isolation, this catalogue illustrates nearly 40 installations and sculptural objects which range from ornate pasteboard maces and other weapons by Norberto Gomez (b. 1941), food assemblages by Victor Grippo (b. 1936), elaborate wooden tool boxes by Luis F. Benedit (b. 1937) and book-like abstract metal reliefs by Jacques Bedel (b. 1947).
