From Friday 18 May until Tuesday 22 May, arteBA 2012 dusts down its canvases to begin the 21st edition of the art collectors’ fair that gets Buenos Aires, if not Argentina and Latin America, buzzing.
ArteBA is a hugely important event from the galleries’ perspective because it allows them to showcase the best of contemporary Argentinian art. The event gathers local gallery greats, such as Ruth Benzacar, Teresa Anchorena and Jardín Oculto, and the emerging such as Rayo Lazer and Mite, giving one and all the chance to shine brightly with exhibitions and installations from their prized artists. Exhibitors are divided into various categories, including the ‘Barrio Joven Chandon’ for emergent artists, ‘Galleries at arteBA 2012’ for the more established venues and the ‘Petrobras Visual Arts Prize’.
