September 6 – 12, 2018

An artistic journey through Buenos Aires

Visit Buenos Aires from September 6-12, 2018 to experience the Art Basel Cities Week

The Art Basel Cities Week, curated by Cecilia Alemani, will take place in Buenos Aires from September 6-12. A long-term collaboration with the vibrant Argentine capital, Art Basel Cities: Buenos Aires will celebrate the city’s thriving cultural ecosystem, inviting international audiences and Art Basel’s extensive network to experience and immerse themselves in its dynamic art scene.

‘Hopscotch’, curated by Cecilia Alemani for the Art Basel Cities Week in Buenos Aires, is a journey through the city, with works installed across three neighborhoods. To carve out a multilayered program that draws on the city’s rich cultural heritage and the excitement and energy of its art scene, Alemani has worked with Argentine and international artists including Eduardo Basualdo, Pia Camil, Maurizio Cattelan, Gabriel Chaile, Alex Da Corte, Santiago de Paoli, David Horvitz, Leandro Katz, Barbara Kruger, Luciana Lamothe, Ad Minoliti, Eduardo Navarro, Mika Rottenberg, Mariela Scafati, Vivian Suter, and Stan VanDerBeek. Alongside ‘Hopscotch’, the Art Basel Cities Week will present a Talks and Cultural Partner Program, organized in partnership with the city’s leading art institutions.

This multi-year program also comprises ongoing initiatives that facilitate and explore professional collaborations, projects, and cultural conversations. The exchanges between the international and Argentine artworlds will create a platform to amplify Buenos Aires’ position as a cultural destination of choice.
