Get ready to learn about this fascinating country through its art from key historical periods. First, we will see the country's largest Latin-American Art collection at MALBA. Next, we'll go to the National Art Museum where we will start by taking a glance at pre-hispanic art and culture, and then learn about the sociopolitical context of the 19th Century, before and after independence, through Historical Paintings made for the ruling classes and works inspired by European Social Realism. After that, we'll dive into the 20th Century, focusing on works by politically-conscious artists, created during and after the dictatorships. Finally, we’ll move to the Modern Art Museum, MAMBA, to look at the Argentinian take on 20th-Century Avant-Garde and Modernist movements, from Cubism to Informalism. In-between each museum, we will take two short sightseeing cab rides where you will learn about the historic areas of the city we drive past (Recoleta, Retiro and the Historic District)
I'm a Visual Artist, having recently graduated from the National University of Arts in Buenos Aires. I’ve exhibited my work in the city and abroad. I quit my career in advertising and moved here from El Salvador in 2013 to pursue my true passion by studying Art. I have over 5 years of teaching experience, both one to one and in groups. Being an art history lover has led me to learn about Argentinian culture through the work of the artists who have shaped and been inspired by it.
