ArteBA — Buenos Aires, Argentina
ArteBa is one of Latin America’s largest contemporary art fairs. Taking place over the course of four days, the annual Buenos Aires’ event attracts an average of 100,000 art junkies from across the planet and provides visitors with opportunity to meet the artists and network with aficionados.
Sponsored by The ArteBA Foundation and brought together with the help of a multitude of corporate sponsors and the Buenos Aires Culture Department, ArteBA provides visibility for established local artists and a platform for emerging artist to get their work noticed on the international level. The fair also aids in the acquisition of new works for some of Argentina’s top museums including MALBA.
Since it is such a large exhibition, the fair consists of different sections that may have varying attendance requirements. Open to the public free of charge, the Open Forum is one of the highlights of the fair.
The art fair takes place at the Palermo exhibition center, La Rural.
Entrance to the art fair, which can be purchased online or at La Rural, includes a free audio guide.
