Abstract or Description

A talk presented in September 2022 on the occasion of an exhibition of Graciela Sacco's works curated by her daughter Clara Garavelli and gallery director Patricia Bossio. Alessio Antoniolli (Gasworks & Triangle Network),also spoke at the event.
Graciela Sacco was an Argentine visual artist. She passed away, too early, in 2017. She was one of the artists I had written about in my book The Art of Post-Dictatorship, and through my research, we had developed a friendship. I visited her at her home in Rosario and in Spain, she visited me at mine in London, we met in Europe with our families, and we kept in touch across distances. So of course, when her daughter Clara asked me to speak today I was more than happy to honour my friend and to speak about her work.
