of the spotlight being shone on our city, and
the boost that a brand like Art Basel can give
to the Argentine art scene," she says.
The enthusiasm extends to important
local institutions such as the Museo de
Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires
(MALBA), home to an impressive collection of contemporary Latin American art.
"Art Basel will give the outside world a look
inside, adding value to everything that's
already going on here, a city with so much
creative energy," says Agustín Pérez Rubio,
the museum's Spanish-born artistic director. Since he joined MALBA in 2014, Pérez
Rubio has developed a calendar that included a recent Yoko Ono retrospective and the
installation of a larger-than-life ballerina
sculpture by Jeff Koons, which graced the
museum's entrance. Through October 9,
the work of influential photographer Diane
Arbus is on display, a loan from NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art. All this is to say
that, for art-loving travelers, it's high time
to fly down to Buenos Aires.
