Understanding the cultural complexities and artistic sensibilities of a megacity such as Buenos Aires can often seem somewhat impossible. On this Artist Studio Tour, you can leave the traditional tourist routes and meet the people behind the city’s creative identity.
With an art landscape steeped in history, the south of Buenos Aires is home to many leading artists, and together, they embody the city’s vibrant artistic framework. You will engage with the artists themselves, explore their captivating private ateliers, listen to them recount personal stories, and learn about their creative handiwork that has given life to the area. In between each of these studio excursions, as you stroll down iconic cobblestoned streets, you can also admire the mastery and innovation of bygone artisans who once decorated certain spaces of the city in extraordinary colours, turning the buildings into a living abstract painting.
This Artist Studio Tour also incorporates a trip to an authentic independent gallery that houses the work of contemporary street artists, and a visit to the Museum of Quinquela Martin, a local hidden treasure. Martin was a famous Argentine painter renowned for both his remarkable depictions of port city life, and his philanthropy work around La Boca, which, ultimately, turned the place into one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. Filled with different styles and individual forms of expression, these two exhibition spaces provide a unique window into the local art scene.
This adventure will be sure to leave you with a lasting insight into the workings of Argentina’s dynamic cultural heritage. Book your enriching Artist Studio Tour now and help contribute to the sustainable development of this community.
