Buenos Aires recently made it to the number four spot on our list of best cities for American artists wishing to relocate after Trump’s election, and for good reason: host to over 80 galleries, South America’s second-largest collector audience, and the annual ArteBA fair, there’s much for artists and art lovers to see and do while in the Argentinian capital. Start with the galleries, and visit Art Consultant Mosto & Rojas Arte for the cheerful acrylic paintings of local artist Ines Echenique, on view through June 17. Then be sure to head over to Ruth Benzacar for the inventive sculpture and installations of Carlos Huffmann, or Henrique Faria gallery for the powerful political art of Elda Cerrato. The city’s museum circuit is nothing to sneeze at, either, with the current Tomás Saraceno exhibition at MAMBA or the touching work of Hugo Aveta in the show “The Intimate Awareness of Objects,” up at the Centro Cultural Haroldo Conti until the end of July. Vamos.
