Art Basel Cities 2018: Buenos Aires

Art Basel Cities 2018: Buenos Aires 

 

Taking place across three neighborhoods of the city, 'Hopscotch', curated by Cecilia Alemani, has been conceived as a journey through the city of Buenos Aires, occupying grand plazas and striking parks, abandoned buildings and museums of curiosities, derelict architectural structures and industrial relics that are not typically devoted to contemporary art. The selected artists were invited to create artworks in close dialogue with each of the venues, shaping a multilayered experience that connects visual arts, urban spaces and the city’s histories in unexpected ways.

 

This year’s program is titled 'Hopscotch (Rayuela)' and borrows its name from the groundbreaking experimental novel by Argentine writer Julio Cortázar. Originally published in 1963, the novel follows a non-linear narrative that can be read in multiple sequences, jumping from chapter to chapter, as suggested by the title inspired by the ancient children’s street game popular in many cultures. Like the book and the game, the public art program hopscotches through the city, shaping possible journeys and different paths through urban space, creating unexpected connections between sites and artworks. Through this exploration of the city, local audiences and international visitors alike will discover neverseen-before venues and forgotten landmarks that will host artworks realized specifically for the Art Basel Cities Week. The artworks presented as part of 'Hopscotch' span from site specific sculptures and experiential installations to live performances and participatory actions – most were specifically created for the program. Offering both, spectacular gestures and subtle interventions, artists have been commissioned to create works that will infiltrate the fabric of the city, creating new experiences, functioning as platforms for different encounters with art against the unique background of the city of Buenos Aires.
