Futuristas in La Boca






















Fundación Proa presents the Futurist Universe. 1909 - 1936, a historic exhibition with more than 240 works from the Modern Art Museum of Trento and Rovereto (MART) curated by MART'S Director, Gabriella Belli.

The exhibition reveals the creative passion of the futurism movement that originated in Italy in the early twentieth century. A movement that was founded by the poet Fillippo Tommaso Marinetti in 1909. A new vision of the world which serves novelty, ignores the past and admires technology, speed and industrial cities.

- What? Music, Photography, Paintings, Fashion, Objects, etc. from this revolutionary movement.
- Where? Fundacion PROA - Av. Pedro de Mendoza 1929. La Boca, Caminito
- When? April - July 2010

Getaway

Buenos Aires is a beautiful city. With it's mad traffic, crowded streets, loudness, French-style cafés, parks filled with Jacarandá trees, exciting nightlife, art scene, architecture, grand avenues, city polo fields... there is everything to love about it.
What I also love is how easy it is to get away and enjoy some slow time. I usually go to Punta del Este or Patagonia, where I am a completely happy person. But, there are also beautiful hideaways within a close distance from the city that are ideal to go unwind, play polo and enjoy nature. Estancia El Rocio, owned by a friend is an example.

Together, but not!

















During my short Easter break I was talking to a friend about moving in with the person you love, something that she has decided not to do, regardless of the fact that she's been with her boyfriend for almost 4 years. I've had this same conversation with several other people lately, including a guy friend who told me "oh, we moved together, but I still have my own place, that's what keeps me happy in this relationship".

So, I was thinking: maybe relationships have changed... I mean, first, it was falling in love, getting married and living together. Then it was moving together before getting married, or maybe just moving together, having a family and not getting married. Being in love and sharing a common project does seem like enough to make the commitment to live with and share our lives with our "other half", don't you think? but now, there is another option which is to fall in love of course, spend time with your sweetheart, enjoy each others' company and share experiences, but not a home!

Perhaps there are those who choose this way of "outdoor relationship" because they are divorced and have already lived with someone, so they fear making the same mistakes? or they simply choose to live alone cause they appreciate their independence and individual space; there are also those who have children and prefer to dedicate their time to them; and those who are just young and not ready to commit. Either way, it's a new thing happening among couples here in Argentina. A (can I call it "practice"?) I don't entirely agree with, but understand.
