MIA – First Exhibition
I gave my first public exhibition aged six in the square of the small town in the North of Argentina where my family then lived. My mother hung the paintings from tree to tree. I was so happy to see them displayed and loved the way they fluttered in the wind. I remember the wind blew one of the paintings off the line and I had to run to catch it. A year later, in 1972, I won the ‘Odol Pregunta’ national art prize. This made me more determined than ever to become an artist.
