IDA Foundation originates exhibitions and showcase experiences, provides counseling, and borrows material for diverse curatorial projects. The exhibition Cuerpos contacto, has been open to the public since May 2022 at the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires. The display includes pieces that belong to the museum 's patrimony as well as work by guest artists. The exhibition, curated by Francisco Lemus, Marcos Krämer, Clarisa Appendino, and Violeta González Santos, encourages the audience to conceive the body in a diverse way, integrating all its potential identities and genders. The showcase includes elements influenced by the 1960’s pop art and references to the 1980’s- 1990’s underground scene. The exhibition features the original piece “Tricot precolombino” (c. 1970), by artist and designer Dalila Puzzovio; an artwork that belongs to the IDA Collection. This clothing item merges pop art and pre hispanic culture; it is part of the colored wool, urban-peasant line designed by Puzzovio. It is a non-conventional, open sleeves model alongside a flared skirt, which was sold at the time by Madame Frou-Frou. Its manufacturing process included the adaptation of the visual pattern to punched cards attached to a power loom that would finally weave the piece in jacquard fabric. Cuerpos contacto gathers pieces by artists such as Edgardo Giménez, Delia Cancela-Pablo Mesejean, Marta Minujín, and Sergio De Loof, among other recognized creators, who contributed to a dynamic culture linked to an effervescent aesthetic, sexual, and political scene.
