Art Basel Cities: Buenos Aires in collaboration with arteBA Fundación will host a Talks Programme between April 12–14, 2019. Forty-two speakers from across the cultural sphere will discuss salient topics with the Buenos Aires audience. Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna of Latitudes will each participate in Parallel Rooms, an Art Basel programme format that began in 2017 allowing attendees to choose from and roam among multiple conversations happening simultaneously. Check the full events programme here (in Spanish). Parallel Rooms takes place at arteBA, Pista Central de la Rural, Palermo, and are free and open to the public.
Saturday 13 April 2019 6:30—7:30pm In this conversation, curators Max Andrews and Lara Marmor will discuss the challenges around what has become their primary job: curating and positioning an exhibition for a non-expert audience. Together they discuss: Are there curatorial strategies for speaking to a larger public? What can we do to encourage novices to visit an exhibition and help them enjoy it?
This session is free and open to the public and will be held in Spanish.
Art is no longer confined to just museums; we can enjoy exhibitions in abandoned buildings, parks, and other unconventional spaces. But the contexts for art are also changing in another sense, as new curatorial narratives shift traditional definitions of art and allow artists to engage in refreshing interactions with the culture at large. In this talk, curators Mariana Cánepa Luna and Solana Molina Viamonte discuss the transformation of traditional art spaces and the evolving relationship between the art lover and the curator.
This session is free and open to the public and will be held in Spanish. + info
