Guillermo Roux at the Decorative Art Museum

Guillermo Roux is an Argentine artist who has often dealt with surrealist themes in his paintings and drawings. The stunning Museo de Arte Decorativo, which is well worth visiting for its permanent exhibit and for its gorgeous architecture, is showcasing a series of drawings that the artist made during a period of illness in which he couldn’t move and  in which he spent his time drawing the objects that surrounded him in the darkness of the night. The drawings were all carried out in charcoal and testify to both the artist’s abilities and also to the capacity of transcending confinement and limitation through artistic expression.

The exhibition will be open until  2 March. The museum opens from Tuesday to Saturday from 2pm to 7pm.
