ART-GUION XXI GALLERY HAS THE HONOR

 TO PRESENT THE EXHIBITION OF WORKS

 OF THE ARGENTINE MASTERS

 RAQUEL FORNER AND ALFREDO BIGATTI

WITH SPONSORSHIP OF THE FORNER-BIGATTI FOUNDATION

 PRESENTATION of the Forner Bigatti FOUNDATION

 

The Forner-Bigatti Foundation is a non-profit institution created by the painter Raquel Forner in 1982. Its aim is to protect, make better known and promote the works of this artist and her husband, sculptor Alfredo Bigatti, as well as encourage all activities that help enrich our cultural patrimony, with particular stress on those that have to do with the development of Argentine plastic arts.

It is located in what was the couple’s home since 1937. This house still keeps its original structure (built in an avant-garde style of the times). It hosts, on a permanent basis, an exhibition of both artists’ production, together with those elements (photos, work implements, travel souvenirs) which we believe transmit to visitors the feel of the spirit and personality of the people who lived in and imbued it with warm affection.

 

House built by the Forner Bigatti couple. The Foundation’s home.
