RIP Leon Ferrari- 1920-2013

Word comes from Sicardi gallery of the death of internationally renowned Argentine artist Leon Ferrari. He created art which continually challenged both authority and artistic conventions. A pioneer of conceptual art in Argentina,he worked in and combined a vqriety of mediums which he used to challenge abuse of power in all of its forms and wherever he found it. One of his exhibitions was censored and then shut down by the Catholic church in the mid-60’s and then was forced to flee Argentina during the years of the dictatorship. A great loss.
