Enjoying the back-room

The Expotrastiendas art gallery fair has something for all tastes.

In Buenos Aires, the 9th edition of the Expotrastiendas art gallery fair is presenting works of the artists of more than 70 art galleries along an open zig-zagging course that takes paintings, sculptures, installations and audiovisuals out of the cubicle stalls typical of such exhibitions and puts them into a network in which all are be seen by all visitors. The objective of this art fair, organized by the Argentine Association of Art Galleries, is to exhibit works of all styles and tendencies by artists of all ages for the benefit of collectors and buyers as well as the general public. During the five days that the show will be on (Oct. 16-20 this year) at the Centro Municipal de Exposiciones (City Exhibitions Center) at Figueroa Alcorta and Pueyrredón, there will also be seminars, book presentations and lectures by people from the art and cultural scene.
