Expotrastiendas, the art fair organized by the Argentine Association of Art Galleries (Asociación Argentina de Galerías de Arte or AAGA) since 2001 aims to promote and disseminate visual arts, helping artists to show their production in a different context, which attracts collectors and buyers as well as the general public.
Expotrastiendas and AAGA jointly organize different cultural events, such as seminars, contests and exhibitions, which foster and provide dynamism to the art market.
This year, Expotrastiendas will include a place for the electronic arts, organized by Rodrigo Alonso. There will also be a special space for the Argentine art of the 30’s, and a schedule of performances with international guests: Carlos Tejo (Spain), Cecilia Mato (Uruguay), Ursula Stadler (Switzerland), Luis Ricaurte (Mexico) and Pabla Ugarte (Chile).
