Art Basel Cities: Buenos Aires Partnership

Art Basel Cities: Buenos Aires is a multi-year program of initiatives that celebrate the city’s thriving cultural ecosystem and facilitate exchanges between the international and Argentine artworlds. In tandem with our local Cultural Partners, the program seeks to foreground leading museums, foundations, artist-run spaces, associations, and nonprofits, highlighting Buenos Aires’s rich artistic history and current creative production. These long-term professional collaborations, projects, and cultural conversations amplify Buenos Aires’s position as a cultural destination of choice.

If you have a specialized interest within the Buenos Aires art scene, or if you are interested in meeting a local stakeholder, please write us at and we will help you to connect.
