After moving to Paris in 1968 and after he did some exhibitions in the early seventies, including the one held in 1971 in Santiago de Chile, he disappeared. He was a shooting star in the art world in this city.
Despite there are Carra´s artworks in important museums like Pompidou and the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, in Latin America little is known about his career and the originality of his art, considered avant-garde at its time. Art Democracy (https://www.facebook.com/artdemocracy) decided to trace the work of Carmelo Carra and finally found some interesting paintings of the late sixties and early seventies in the gallery of Maria de Beyrie in Meudon and Laurent Schwarz's house, a Parisian art dealer.
Carmelo Carra is today recognized in Buenos Aires by a few collectors and gallery owners as Enrique Scheinsohn and Teresa Anchorena.
