“Ciudad Automática de Buenos Aires” is an art exhibition that represents the city of Buenos Aires through art and interactivity.

It is an exhibition of works inspired by everyday places and characters of the city of Buenos Aires, created by the plastic artist Josie Watson, who generates an avant-garde exhibition by interlacing her paintings on canvas with other technological disciplines.

 A traditional exhibition of 11 large format paintings inspired in the city of Buenos Aires is enhanced by two augmented reality paintings of wich one is a representation of the artist’s personal studio, one interactive sculpture and a interactive mapping on a painting that allows viewers to change the colours of the paintings with an App.  

The artist shares her way of living, observing and feeling her greatest inspiring muse, the city of Buenos Aires, with the distinctive stamp of merging her renowned painting style with music, literature, sculpture, digital projections, augmented reality, interactive installations and social networks, to express in an integrated way what it is to live in the city of Buenos Aires in the current era of interactivity.

Josie Watson is a young Argentine artist who found her style of painting at an early age, participating in exhibitions and shows since she was 11 years old. Being a prominent artist in the emerging art auctions of Banco Ciudad, she gained the appreciation of the city’s collectors and her painting has become an identifying landmark of the city of Buenos Aires both locally and internally.

British Art Center – Automatic City – Josie Watson

British Art Center – Automatic City – Josie Watson

Ciudad Automática (Automatic City) is the creation of the artist Josie Watson that will be officially exhibited for the first time in the city of Buenos Aires in the three floored gallery of the British Arts Center (BAC). The series of paintings was inspired in 2008 by the question about her father’s decision to return to live in Argentina, when he was only 17, in view of the possibility of having chosen Syndey and its (very different) quality of life.
Ciudad Automática expresses the experiences that the artist went through in her youth in this chaotic city, at times unintelligible, at times revealing. Chaos and realization are uniquely captured in works where hyperrealism and her graphic style are twinned with an irresistible tension.
July 10th to 31st at the British Art Center (BAC) of the AACI (Argentine Association of English Culture) in Suipacha 1333
Visits: Monday to Friday from 3 to 9 pm.

Banco Ciudad continues its policy of supporting emerging artists

October 15, 2012 Mario Gilardoni 0 Comments

Written by Mario Gilardoni

With its “New Aires Art” label, the Bank continues to promote auctions with works by young artists who have not yet entered the commercial auction circuit. And to do so, it does not spare any of the attributes that surround its traditional operations: a first-class catalogue, advertising support and the entire sales structure at the service of this operation.

The public rewarded with the best offer a mixed technique of Josie Watson, who did not hesitate to put everything in the grill since “Avenida Corrientes – De la serie automática” obtained the first prize of the Salón Estímulo de Ramos Mejía. Made this year in a measure of 100×120 cm it was paid 8.625 pesos.

With an image that reveals the Caribbean spirit of his work, Ebenezer Leyva of Cuban origin, collected 6,400 pesos for “El vuelo del Icaro” of 136×90 cm. Third place on the price podium went to a sculpture by Federico Klarich made up of wooden assemblages that gave shape to the “Dog” of 80x110x55 cm which was paid 4,000 pesos.

The Bank’s firmness in supporting this philosophy of encouraging young artists was reflected in the synthetic comment of Carlos Leiza -responsible for the sales area- “For next year we plan to hold three auctions similar to those we held in 2012”.

In addition, the work of artist Carlos Gallardo, “Chupa sangre”, produced in 2003, was presented.

In this way, Banco Ciudad reaffirms its commitment to the city and contemporary art, thus involving the best of both worlds.
