Currently acclaimed as one of the most important fairs in the region, arteBA has managed to become, since its creation in 1991, a meeting point that witnessed the deep changes in the visual art’s scenario (and its acceptance as an institution) in Argentina: this event saw the rising of new galleries, museums, foundations, alternative sites and artistic projects of all kinds, thus granting an unusual visibility to contemporary art.

For this important anniversary, arteBA 2016 edition 25 -that will take place from May 19th to 22nd at La Rural convention center in Buenos Aires– will celebrate its quarter-century on the local scene by programming a series of activities that will go beyond the physical premises of the La Rural convention center and connect with the major museums and institutions of Buenos Aires, in order to offer a complete experience dedicated to contemporary art and pay homage to the growth of a shared art panorama.

Within the framework of this celebration, we have invited the three winners of our Young Curators Program to prepare a special edition for the DIXIT section: Federico Baeza, Lara Marmor and Sebastián Vidal Mackinson. They will present Oasis, a curatorial proposal with over 50 artists and 900 m2 Argentina in the last years and which will offer, for the first time, a space other than for exhibition purposes, that would serve as the platform of talks and activities connected to literature, cinema and theatre.

Location and Opening times:

La Rural, Blue and Green Pavilions, 2704 Sarmiento Avenue, Buenos Aires
Thursday, May 19: 2 – 9 pm
Friday, May 20: 2 – 9 pm
Saturday, May 21: 2 – 9 pm
