Buenos Aires: See + Do
A tour of the city’s art and historical gems for culture hounds.
Housed in a renovated grain mill, the just-opened Faena Arts Center (1169 Aimé Painé) is a cathedral-size museum dedicated to works by artists such as Cuban duo Dagoberto Rodríguez and Marco Castillo, who are known as Los Carpinteros.
Swing by Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (350 Avda. San Juan) to see 20th-century pieces in the industrial and video arts. Highlights include Antonio Seguí silk-screen prints and Alberto Heredia sculptures.
Ruth Benzacar, in Retiro, is a must for lovers of avant-garde art. The spacious gallery showcases the best from both emerging and established Argentine artists (Flavia Da Rim and Miguel Ángel RÍos, to name two).
At Malba, you’ll find a permanent collection of more than 500 paintings, sculptures, and objects from top Latin American talent. There’s also a screening room that showcases independent films.
