Public Art Hopscotches Across Buenos Aires

January 14th, 2019

In 2018, a city-wide public art experience lures us to the capital of Argentina. Organizers of Art Basel Cities Week Buenos Aires, invited Cecilia Alemani, director of the public art program for New York City’s High Line park, to curate Rayuela (Spanish for Hopscotch). Crisscrossing Buenos Aires, we discover historic plazas, parks and museums, abandoned buildings, architecture and industrial sites. We meet artists whose projects connect contemporary art with urban space, civic history and community.

Featured projects: Maurizio Cattelan, Eduardo Navarro, Eduardo Basualdo, Alexandra Pirici, Gabriel Chaille, David Horvitz, Naama Tsabar
