Acquisition Program for Museums and Businesses

Posted by | May 13, 2017 | arteBA Fair, arteBA Fair

In its 26th edition, arteBA continues to develop programs that promote artistic production, collecting and further development of the art market in our country. Once again, arteBA’s Acquisition Program for local and international museums contributes to their patrimony and encourages institutional collecting.

The Matching Funds arteBA-Banco Ciudad Program will designate an important sum of money to three Argentinean museums: the MAT – Museo de Arte Tigre, the Museo Franklin Rawson in San Juan and the Museo Sívori in Buenos Aires. In a new edition of Impulsarte, La Rural will also acquire works exhibited at arteBA 2017, the Hotel Panamericano will make the first acquisition at the Fair for the Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes Emilio Caraffa, and Madero Harbour confirms its commitment to collecting by acquiring works for its real estate projects for the third time. In addition, thanks to support from the Agencia Argentina de Inversiones (Argentina’s Investment and Trade Promotion Agency), 13 international museums arrive in Argentina to acquire works at arteBA along with 6 local counterparts.
