Auto Body debuted in December 2014 at Giant Motors, produced by Spinello Projects. The traveling exhibition features women artists working in video, performance and new media, nominated by a committee of international women curators. With each new city, a local curatorial committee selects works by local artists to be added to the platform — continually fostering an exchange of ideas and a transnational conversation on the political and economic inequalities of the art world and beyond.
The FAC is a center for arts and artistic experimentation, created by Faena to present ground-breaking, site-specific installations and offer both an international and innovative exhibition program to the city of Buenos Aires. Generating ideas and dialogue within the surrounding community, as well as across the Americas and with the international contemporary art world, the FAC is space for cross-cultural investigation and creation that supports the newest, most cutting-edge, and boldest forms of creativity.Inaugurated in 2011, the Faena Art Center, under the guidance and overarching vision of Executive Director, Ximena Caminos, has commissioned contemporary artists to envision and realize major site-specific works, such as: ángeles veloces arcanos fugaces by assume vivid astro focus (October 2014); Mendoza Walking by Richard Long (June 2014); Fyodor’s Performance Carousel by Fyodor Pavlov‐Andreevich (May 2014); The Liminal Space Trilogy by the Russian collective AES+F (May 2013, curated by Sonia Becce); El Aleph by Anthony McCall and Mischa Kuball; Los Carpinteros by the Cuban collective of the same name (May 2012); Walking South by Franz Ackermann (November 2012); Los Paraísos Desplegables by Manuel Ameztoy and O bicho suspenso na paisagem by Ernesto Neto (September 2011, curated by Jessica Morgan).
