The Jorge Mara • La Ruche Gallery, inaugurated in late 2001, is a new space continuing the tradition of the existing Jorge Mara gallery held in Buenos Aires in the 1980s, and the one exhibiting in Madrid from 1990-98.
Following the program of the previous galleries, the new space spotlights the work of emerging artists, as well as exhibitions focused on distinctive aspects of established artists active in mid twentieth century Argentinean and Latin American art.
Exhibits in Spain in the ‘90s include: “Millares sobre papel”; “Feito año 1960”; “Guerrero en Nueva York”; “Henri Michaux”; “Mark Tobey”; “Ben Nicholson”; “Rafael Barradas”; “Estrada”; “ Washington Barcala”; “Zoran Music”, among others.
Selected exhibitions held in Argentina in the ‘80s include: “Alfredo Guttero”; “Aizenberg y el Surrealismo”; “La Nueva Figuración: De la Vega, Maccio, Deira, Noe”.
