Buenos Aires’ artworld

The artistic talent and vitality that characterize the city of Buenos Aires today began to flourish in the 20th century. The city's streets, colors, neighborhoods, and even its geographical location presented inexhaustible sources of inspiration to Argentine artists, and continue to do so in the present day. Since the beginning of this century, Buenos Aires’ cultural landscape has gone from strength to strength: the city’s art scene is rich, diverse, and cross-generational, with a diverse range of artistic practices where conventional traditions coexist alongside the novelty of innovation. Argentina’s gallerists, collectors, curators, and key artworld minds - interviewed below - provide a look into Argentina’s thriving art ecosystem.
