Sir Anish Mikhail Kapoor, CBE, RA is an Indian British sculptor specializing in installation art and conceptual art. Born in Bombay, Kapoor has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s when he moved to study art, first at the Hornsey College of Art and later at the Chelsea School of Art and Design. Kapoor’s Mother was an Iraqi Jewish immigrant who moved to India from Baghdad with her parents as an infant. His father, a Hindu, was a hydrographer for the Indian Navy, who spent much of Kapoor’s childhood on the ocean collecting data. His cosmopolitan and forward thinking parents sent him to a prestigious boarding school and by the time he was a teenager, he found it greatly challenging to fit in to Indian society. He credits 15 years of psychoanalysis to helping him understand his artistic journey which he began in London, later returning to India to find the roots of his art before returning to the UK an becoming a British Citizen.
While the quantity of work listed on his website is mind boggling link here, the exhibit has just a few installations, each unique and thought provoking. Kapoor gave a talk in 2017 at Usina del Arte in La Boca when he told a funny anecdote about a man who threw his glasses onto a black circle created by Kapoor stating “This isn’t art!!!” As his glasses fell into the void he had to swallow his words. A similar work forms part of this exhibition so I’d not recommend testing the same theory. We will talk about each of the works over lunch so that you will have a better understanding and appreciation when you see them,
As some of you know from our last visit, fundacion PROA is not a museum since it has no collection. Yet it brings some of the most important contemporary artists from around the world and has a new educational facility, PROA 21 a couple of blocks away.
On the top floor of the foundation building Cafe Proa looks over the Riachuelo inlet and the Iconic Loading Bridge Puente Transbordador Nicolás Avellaneda built in 1914 and now a national monument. You can also catch a glimpse of the top of the Bombonera, Boca staduim, if you go out on to the balcony.

We will see how Erlich rethinks moments in our everyday lives and repackages them in magical funny, nostalgic and at times disturbing ways. From the laundry to the elevator, sitting in a hair salon, a puddle on the sidewalk, a triangular garden, an underwater gathering and a journey back in time to a classroom are creations of a brilliant mind, each creating a sense of illusion that gives us all, young and old alike, an opportunity to reflect and wonder.
Ninina Bakery is MALBA’s in-house dining space. At a community table, sharing plates and a glass of wine, we will play a Q&A card game related to the exhibit before heading upstairs to the second floor.
