arteBA2006: A unique blend to discover
A perfect combination of features of a hybrid origin make Buenos Aires a unique city, one to remain in your senses a long time after your visit. A city which concurrently offers the architectonic beauty of its sumptuous past, the exciting night life of a cosmopolitan city, and the sensuality and tempo of its Latin American roots.

These characteristics flow and drain in an intense artistic production and a cultural movement that take place in venues like Malba-Colección Constantini, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Museo de Arte Moderno and a huge circuit of centers and art galleries established or alternative ones where something is on the move.

During six days, arteBA Feria de Arte Contemporáneo, the most visited cultural event in Buenos Aires city and the most important in Latin America, concentrates this energy and becomes a tourist attraction pole and an art business center. The art fair is visited by most outstanding collectors and culture representatives, with a thirst to discover different proposals, inspire new airs and ignore those who simply offer the same old stuff.

This is the right time for galleries to exhibit their best Latin American art works, thus favoring the publics meeting with collection pieces. Its also a moment for the new spaces in the region to introduce their youngest artists working within the latest trends, those not to be found in other art fairs.

Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Spain, the United States, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela will be in a permanent exchange during this meeting which has become a must in the annual agenda for the visual arts.
