If you like this kind of art, you can’t miss the unique opportunity to go for a ride.
Landscapes of Light: William Turner
A selection of works by British artist William Turner, known worldwide as “the painter of light”, arrives in Buenos Aires in September this year. Turner (1775-1851) is considered one of the most talented landscape painters in the history of art. The exhibition will show the public 10 pieces of the renowned artist who raised landscape painting to the levels of historical painting. Like the exhibition explained in the previous section, you will be able to see his work at the National Museum of Fine Arts.
Moving Abstraction: Alexander Calder
The American sculptor Alexander Calder (1898-1976) is famous worldwide for his abstract works made of wood and wire, but also for his mobile creations: structures of organic forms that are suspended in the air and sway in harmony. The exhibition will begin in August and will continue until November at Fundación Proa, located in the picturesque neighborhood of La Boca. Be sure to see the work of one of the greatest avant-garde artists of the last century.
Unforgettable moments: Football project
In the year of the World Cup in Russia, the Fola space celebrates football with an exhibition of emblematic images entitled “Project Football”. Thanks to the contribution of historical archives and great authors from Latin America, you will be able to see unforgettable moments such as “El abrazo del alma” (World Cup 78) or the famous and controversial “Mano de Dios” (World Cup 86), among others. It opens in May and continues during several months of the year.
Collaborative art: Turn
Led by Japanese artist Katsuhiko Hibino, Turn is a project conceived in the framework of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to be held in Tokyo in 2020, and which is being replicated in different countries. In addition to Hibino, other artists from Japan, Argentina and Peru are participating. What is it about? After doing residencies in social institutions in each country, the artists use traditional craft techniques and customs to create their works.
The main idea is that they settle in local minority communities to live their individuality and exchange knowledge. It can be seen until December in the Muntref (Museum of the National University of Tres de Febrero), located in the Retiro neighborhood.
