Annotations

The Premio Instituto Torcuato Di Tella was established in 1960, a few months after the creation of the Centro de Arte del Instituto Torcuato Di Tella (ITDT) [in Buenos Aires]. The ITDT was run by a board composed of Lionello Venturi, Ricardo Camino, Guido Di Tella and Jorge Romero Brest. It  was dedicated to the dissemination and promotion of the visual arts as well as to maintaining contact with other centers linked to national and foreign production. The Premio ITDT was created within this framework with the intention of awarding opportunities to young Argentinean artists to enrich their experiences abroad. The Premio ITDT not only awarded prizes/scholarships, but also favored the dissemination of international art within the local scene. This made it an important institution for the renewal of the visual arts at the time. The prize was awarded to both national and international artists until 1967, with a few variations according to the given year. Afterwards it became known as the Experiencias Visuales 1968 and Experiencias 1969. In 1963 Romero Brest resigned as director of the Museo National de Bellas Artes and accepted the position of director of the Centro de Artes Visuales of the ITDT.
