Arteba - Buenos Aires Contemporary Art Fair

Arteba closed on Tuesday, May 26. More than 125,000 people visited the fair this year, and many gallerists said they were extremely surprised and pleased with the remarkable success in sales. On the event's third day, La Nacion wrote "good art sales contradict the crisis".

This year again, I loved the Chandon –sponsored “Young Neighborhood” section, where the newer galleries displayed more risky works in the forms of street art, installations, and multimedia art. I thought Cala - Gogó gallery was one of the coolest.

Miguel D' Arienzo, Milo Locket, Juan Battle Planas, Léon Ferrari, Leandro Erlich, Diego Garcia, Sebastian Masegosa, Inchauspe, and Chile's Sami Benmayor are some artists whose work I really liked.
Other interesting galleries: Maman's Fine Art Gallery, Ruth Benzacar, Gachi Prieto, Daba Torrejon, Daniel Abate, Chile's Isabel Aninat, and Isabel Anchorena.
