Last Tuesday was the opening of the Art Week in the Park of Art Week, kicking off seven intense days of interdisciplinary and free programming with activities, lectures and guided tours within the framework of Art Basel Cities, arteBA, MAPA and renowned institutions of the City.

This event was held in Plaza Mayor Francisco Seeber, a public space that was activated with a series of lectures and training developed in a semi-open pavilion. In this pavilion, in addition, tribute is paid to the Argentine artist Margarita Paksa with the reissue of two performances of the ’60s. In this evening one of them was reactivated, Communications, unfortunately, the sound invasion produced by the live music of the group Solito located a few meters from the pavilion did not allow to enjoy it fully.

The Margarita Paksa cycle presented by the Sívori Museum is an unmissable opportunity to approach that prolific and avant-garde decade of the ’60s and generate a rereading from the present (throughout the week both performances will be repeated).

In different areas of the square were located other works by Argentinean artists – Luna Paiva, Marie Orensanz, Mariana Tellería, and Carlos Huffmann – in the open air with an impeccable installation that proposes an interesting dialogue with the surrounding space and the public.

As part of the BAFICI program, which coincides with the Art Week, a large screen was installed to project an open-air cycle of art and culture films.

In a festive climate, of artistic interdisciplinarity, debate, and inclusion of diverse publics, the Art Week offers a varied repertoire of activities around contemporary art that are worth discovering.
