Ruth Benzacar, Galeria de Arte
Founded in 1965 by the eponymous Ruth Benzacar, this avant garde art gallery in a hidden underground space near Plaza San Martín is committed to promoting contemporary art in Buenos Aires, paying special attention to the work produced by Argentine artists. The gallery’s annual program includes fourteen exhibitions by both established and emerging artists, and they have a long trajectory of appearing at international art fairs, where work from their artists is discussed alongside other internationally recognized galleries. Today Benzacar’s daughters, Orly and Solana Molina Viamonte, run the gallery.
Since 2002 the gallery has awarded the Curriculum Cero, a prestigious prize with the hope of encouraging young artists and a launching pad of new talent.
