The national Argentinean presentation is displayed at the Ateneo Veneto's Aula Magna, which is heavily decorated with murals and a coffered ceiling, and is located near the La Fenice opera building. As much as the baroque hall is a spectacular sight, it also poses a difficult ambiance for contemporary art.
Guillermo Kuitca has faced the challenge, displaying new works in this tricky location. The internationally well-known artist was presented already amongst others at the Biennials of São Paulo, Istanbul, Gwangju, as well as at the Documenta (1992).
