arteBA Contemporary Art Fair, that will take place from May 24th to May 27th, 2018, is the most popular cultural event in the city of Buenos Aires and the most important one of its kind in Latin America. arteBA is an art exhibition where art galleries display their best artworks, offering the general public the chance to come face to face with truly unique collectors’ pieces. It is also an opportunity for the newer art centers from all over the region to present their younger artists and reveal the very latest trends, which are simply absent from other art fairs.

This year the fair will showcase the most outstanding works by over 400 artists from 80 art galleries from 27 different cities.

The Fair will be divided into several sections, such as, among others:

° Main Section: Established galleries chosen by a renowned selection committee. It will include 52 galleries, 9 of which will participate in the new Stage IRSA modality.

° Cabinet: A specific area within the galleries booths in the main section of the fair. In Cabinet, one or more works by a single artist are exhibited. The aim of the section is to show important, unique, or emblematic works by modern and contemporary artists. 

° U-TURN Project Rooms: will be curated by Magalí Arriola, establishing dialog between 12 galleries with specific projects.

° Solo Show Zurich: will include the participation of 9 Latin American artists from important galleries invited.

° Barrio Joven: is the section dedicated to independent, emerging and alternative projects that represent artists of a young career at the Fair, and this year 15 galleries will be present, featuring different proposals with a particular impetus in performance, set in a specially designed space.

° Isla de Ediciones: with the support of Fundación Proa invites 5 international publishing projects, offers a library space specialized in contemporary art and a collective table with independent labels by Panorama Pulse. Designed by Federico Churba with materials from Ternium. Isla de Ediciones also has its own auditorium with programming of tables and book presentations.

The OPEN FORUM 2018 will be held with free admission in the fair’s auditorium with conferences by international lecturers.

These are just a few of the many activities programmed for this year's exhibition. For more information, visit arteBA'18 official website.
