Leandro Erlich: LIMINAL
Curator
2019-2020
Museo de Arte Latino-Americano de Buenos Aires/MALBA

Buenos Aires, Argentina

MALBA's retrospective exhibition of the Argentine artist Leandro Erlich, several years in the making, drew more than 250,000 visitors — the largest attendance in the museum’s history. Erlich is known for his architecturally illusionistic installations, which frequently employ optical techniques such as mirroring to induce a sense of displacement in viewers.  Liminal is expected to come to the US in 2022.

"Leandro Erlich's work has fascinated me since I first encountered it in the early 1990s, and his art reflects a Borgesian sensibility that feels like a quintessential cultural product of Argentina."
