arteBA . 2011 .20 EDITION
STRETCHING BOUNDARIES AND HOLDING ITS POSITION IN THE REGION
City of Buenos Aires, Argentina – The twentieth edition of arteBA ended on Monday, May 23, 2011. More than 120,000 viewers visited the fair in the five days it was presented in the blue and green pavilions of the fair site and convention center La Rural. Ninety-eight galleries from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Germany, Mexico, the Netherlands, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, the United States, Uruguay and Venezuela presented works by 600 artists. Art collectors, museum directors, curators and cultural journalists from around the world took in the Fair, its distinct artistic offerings and the OPEN FORUM. There was a record number of visits by collectors from all over Latin America and from Europe.
The celebration of the twentieth edition of arteBA made 2011 a particularly important year for the Buenos Aires cultural scene. arteBA is one of the most emblematic fairs in the region and, over the years, has evolved into one of the most outstanding artistic events in the Latin American scene.
arteBA is an exhibition platform for the artistic manifestations that reflect the contemporary spirit. With the aim of ensuring exhibition quality and keeping the fair in line with international standards, a Selection Committee chose 71 galleries that adhered to the focus and aims of the Fair. Fernando Farina (a freelance curator and critic from Santa Fe, Argentina) presided over the arteBA 2011 Gallery Selection Committee, which also included Rodrigo Alonso (freelance curator, Buenos Aires, Argentina), Laura Batkis (art critic, teacher, and freelance curator, Buenos Aires, Argentina), Luisa Duarte (art critic and freelance curator, São Paulo, Brazil), and Fernando Entín (director of the Elsi del Rio Gallery, Buenos Aires, Argentina) representing Argentine galleries.

Thanks to the support of its Sponsors, arteBA was able to develop projects that enriched the contents of the Fair. The festivities for arteBA’s 20th edition included the presentation of the eighth edition of the arteBA-Petrobras Visual Arts Prize, already established in the circuit as one of its most awaited prizes. In this edition, the artist Carlos Herrera (of Rosario, Santa Fe) was declared the winner of the 50,000-peso, non-acquisition Stimulus Prize for his work Self-Portrait of My Death [Autorretrato sobre mi muerte]. Sonia Becce (freelance curator, Buenos Aires) and Claudio Iglesias (art critic and freelance curator, Buenos Aires) served as directors of the competition. The Selection Jury, made up of the directors of the prize and graphic designer Alejandro Ros, in addition to choosing Carlos Herrera among the applicants, chose the following artists who exhibited their projects in the fair and vied with him for the Stimulus Prize: Pablo Accinelli (Buenos Aires), Victoria Colmegna and Valentina Liernur (Buenos Aires), Belén Romero Gunset (Tucumán), Luciana Rondolini (Buenos Aires), Mariana Telleria (Rosario, Santa Fe) and Santiago Villanueva (Azul, province of Buenos Aires). The International Awarding Jury that chose the winning work was made up of Eduardo Costa (artist, Argentina), Cecilia Fajardo-Hill (head curator of MOLAA, USA) and Jochen Volz (curator of the Instituto Inhotim, Brazil).
As a great new feature, the U-TURN Project Rooms by MERCEDES-BENZ was inaugurated this year, a new section at the Fair whose purpose was and will be to bring the viewing public the best in international contemporary art. Abaseh Mirvali (a freelance producer of public cultural projects from California, USA), was the project’s curator and was responsible for selecting the 11 galleries and the artistic offerings of the 18 participating artists. From Germany came the galleries JOHANN KÖNIG, presenting Alicja Kwade and Nathan Hylden; TANYA LEIGHTON showing Dan Rees; PSM, presenting works by Daniel Jackson, Anca Munteanu Rimnic and Ariel Reichman; CHERT showing Heike Kabisch and Erik van der Weijde; and from its sites in both Berlin and Copenhagen came ANDERSEN´S CONTEMPORARY, presenting Tomás Saraceno and Daniel Lergon. From Argentina, the gallery RUTH BENZACAR had its Project Rooms presenting Jorge Macchi, while VASARI showed Karina Peisajovich. From Brazil, A GENTIL CARIOCA presented a Project Room devoted exclusively to Rodrigo Torres, and MENDES WOOD to Daniel Steegmann. CASAS RIEGNER of Colombia exhibited Johanna Calle and Mateo López; and from Mexico, PROYECTOS MONCLOVA presented a Project Room with works by Nina Beier and José León Cerrillo.
From the outset, arteBA has functioned as a platform for launching and discovering young talents. For the past six years, Barrio Joven Chandon has turned the “youth neighborhood” of its name into the space at the fair offering emerging artists the venue in which to be shown. The Selection Committee of Barrio Joven Chandon, entrusted with selecting the 18 participating spaces, was made up of: Ana Paula Cohen (freelance curator, editor and writer, São Paulo, Brazil); Leopoldo Estol (artist, Buenos Aires) and Inés Katzenstein (director of the art department of the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, Bs. As.). As an innovation this year, Barrio Joven Chandon presented the series Maratón Performance + Música, presented during the days of the Fair at the stands of the participating galleries, and on the last day, with open, free admission, in the auditorium. The following galleries participated in Barrio Joven Chandon: BIG SUR (Buenos Aires), BONJOUR GALERÍA (Buenos Aires), BRUMMELL MÉXICO experimental studio (Taluca), CARMEN ARAUJO ARTE (Caracas), CENTRAL DE PROYECTOS . ARTE ACTUAL (Buenos Aires), COBRA (Buenos Aires), COSTADO GALERÍA DE ARTISTAS (Mendoza, Argentina), GALERÍA EMMA THOMAS (São Paulo), PROYECTO giftSHOP (Buenos Aires), JÚPITER (Córdoba, Argentina), LA CENTRAL (Bogotá), LA HERRMANA FAVORITA (Rosario, Argentina), MIAU MIAU (Buenos Aires), MITE (Buenos Aires) MODO 7 GALLERY (Buenos Aires), PURR LIBROS (Buenos Aires), RAYO LAZER (Buenos Aires), RUSIA GALERÍA (Tucumán, Argentina).
This year saw the seventh edition of the arteBA-Zurich Matching Funds Program, thanks to which three Argentine museums acquired works in the course of the Fair. El Museo Superior de Bellas Artes Evita-Palacio Ferreyra, of the city of Córdoba, acquired Pantaleón y las visitadoras, a portfolio of 6 etchings by Ernesto Deira, from 1974 (17/75), inspired by the Mario Vargas Llosa novel of the same name and accompanied by an unpublished text by the same writer, a work shown by the gallery Jacques Martínez. Also from the gallery Rolf Art, they selected two works by Nuna Mangiante, from El Corralito [referring to the Argentine banking embargo of 2001], made with graphite on photographs: Hasta el asfalto [Down to the Asphalt], 1/5 edition, 2003-2009, and Cordobazo [referring to the 1969 Córdoba uprising], 1/5 edition, 2002, both 124,5 x 124,5 cm. Malba–Costantini Foundation of the City of Buenos Aires opted for Elba Bairon’s 2010 installation Untitled, in papier mâché, plaster and stucco, shown by the gallery Zavaleta Lab, and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de la Universidad Nacional del Litoral de la Ciudad de Santa Fe selected the 1973 work Forma en movimiento [Form in Motion] by Eduardo Mac Entyre, 65x65x15 cm, shown by the gallery Ángel Guido Art Project. Zurich gave each of the three museums the sum of $ 28,000 (twenty-eight thousand Argentine pesos), which made up part of a fund with which to purchase the works. Each museum in turn matched or exceeded this sum through other sponsorship, a person or institution, to come up with the total sum that would allow them to purchase the works for their collections. In its seven editions to date, the 13 museums that have made acquisitions have been able to add a total of 43 works to their collections.
The winner of the eight-thousand dollar Acquisition Prize of the second edition of the Concurso Arcos Dorados de Pintura Latinoamericana [Golden Arches Competition in Latin American painting] was the Peruvian artist Giancarlo Scaglia. In 2011 the competition was devoted to the young artists of Brazil, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Peru and Venezuela. The guest curators asked to select among the applicants for those who would exhibit the works in the fair and go on to compete for the acquisition prize were: Tamara Díaz Bringas (freelance curator, now dividing her time between Barcelona and San José de Costa Rica), Julieta González (Venezuelan freelance curator and associate curator of Latin American Art at the Tate Modern, London) Rodrigo Moura (curator, Instituto Inhotim, Minas Gerais, Brazil), Rodrigo Quijano (freelance curator, associated with the former art space “La Culpable,” Lima, Peru) and Marianne Ramírez Aponte (executive director, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico). In addition to the winner Giancarlo Scaglia, the artists chosen to represent their countries were: Rodrigo Bivar (Brazil), Fabrizio Arrieta Avedaño (Costa Rica), Jonathan Torres (Puerto Rico) and Iván Candeo (Venezuela). A jury made up of Alicia de Arteaga, Aníbal Jozami, Carlos Hurtado and Woods Staton voted and added in the public’s vote for the winner as well. The work chosen then became part of the private collection of the Arcos Dorados company.
For the third year in a row, Banco Ciudad took part in arteBA, displaying a special selection of works by young talents and, as is already a tradition in the successive editions of the Fair, it offered the series Charlas de Living (Living Room Chats). Banco Ciudad also presented the work by artist Carlos Gallardo entitled ON & OFF.
As in the most recent editions of the fair, the shopping complex Patio Bullrich again presented a project by a well-established Argentine artist who works between the conceptual framework of Pop art. For arteBA.2011 Dalila Puzzovio was the artist chosen to participate, showing her work El Deslumbre [Dazzle].
CITI was once again the host of the Fair’s pre-opening, and continued to take part in Acquisitions Program. Thanks to its generous donation of USD 25,000 (twenty-five thousand dollars), Malba-Constantini Foundation was able to expand its collection, selecting, from Galería Sur, a 1962 monochrome print by Antonio Berni, entitled Ramona y el Viejo [Ramona and the Old Man]. In addition, CITI was the official credit card for arteBA, offering a two-for-one general admission to the fair and a 20% discount on the arteBA catalog.
La Rural renewed its commitment to the acquisition of art works, giving continuity to its program Impulsarte, the company’s Stimulus Program for Contemporary Art. Through a committee especially designated for this purpose, made up of Victoria Verlichak (freelance curator and art critic), Eva Grinstein (freelance curator) and Juan Pablo Maglier (director of Institutional Relations for La Rural), it chose the following works: by the artist Erica Bohm, Untitled, 2010 from the gallery Chez Vautier; from artist Javier Barilaro, the work Cerfluris, 2010, shown by Cosmocosa; Arqueología, 2010 by Diego Bianchi, shown by the gallery Alberto Sendrós; the 2011 work Untitled by Flavia Da Rin, shown by the gallery Ruth Benzacar; and from the gallery Vasari, the committee chose the 2011 work Intervention in the Sierras of Córdoba, by Diego Haboba. All these works have now entered the company’s art collection.
LAN again offered its free service of audio guides so that the visiting public would have the opportunity to come closer to the creative expression of the artists in the fair, through an exclusive tour mapped out by Alicia de Arteaga, and read out by the well-known radio and TV personality Lalo Mir. As an innovation this year, the audio guide could be downloaded via internet, in addition to being used for free during the Fair.
As part of its program “Arnet, Culture for all,” the Arnet stand was turned into a multi-sensory workshop in which visitors were able not just to observe a work of art but also interact with its creators in their full creative process. The artists invited by curator Máximo Jacoby were Romina Orazi, Marcela Cabutti, Elisa Strada and Roberto Padilla. They worked on small scenes and situations that, far from remaining passively contemplated by the public, offered a connection without intermediaries between the artists and visitors to the Fair.
The Secretariat of Culture for the Nation took part in arteBA by showing at its stand a set of works belonging to the treasures of the Museum of Yrurtia’s House. The work of the Argentine sculptor Rogelio Yrurtia, having fallen into a relative and unjust oblivion over the past two decades, well warranted this new look, connecting us with a creator of great relevance.
Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 spread information about arteBA at the country’s main airports and, in keeping with the celebration of twenty editions of arteBA, and within its program of corporate social responsibility to culture, AA2000 was present with a stand of EspacioArte [ArtSpace], where it paid homage to the painter Kenneth Kemble, exhibiting some of his most important works.
Following in the tradition of each edition of arteBA, and as part of its constant support of cultural and artistic activities, Chandon made the first purchase at the Fair, behind closed doors, for the eleventh year in a row. The jury appointed to select the work was made up of: Ramiro Otaño (general director of Möet Hennessy Argentina), Laura Buccelatto (director of MAMBA, the Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art), Alicia de Arteaga (an outstanding art expert and editor of the daily La Nación) and Fernando Gouiran (Communications and Events director of Moët Hennessy Argentina). Lucio Dorr’s 2007/2008 work Untitled [Sin Título], shown by the Dabbah Torrejón Gallery, was donated to the Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art (MAMBA). In addition, Chandon, in its Barrio Joven Chandon space (the “ young neighborhood”), presented New York artist Tom Fruin, who recreated the work in stained glass that he previously made for the Royal Library in Copenhagen.
The presence of BlackBerry was another great new feature of the Fair this year. For arteBA.2011 the company developed the Fair’s first application of free downloading, which became an invaluable tool for collectors, curators, and the general public.
The Culture Ministry of the City Government of Buenos Aires was again the Silver Sponsor of arteBA and hosted the OPEN FORUM 2011, held in the Fair’s Auditorium with free and open admission. The programming will include a Contemporary Art Series, a program of special presentations, and Prime Time, which featured such outstanding figures as: Michel Blancsubé (curator, JUMEX-Mexico), Cecilia Fajardo-Hill (chief curator, MOLAA [Museum of Latin American Art], USA), Mari Carmen Ramírez (curator of Latin American art, MFAH [Museum of Fine Arts, Houston], USA), Jochen Volz (curator, Instituto INHOTIM–[Minas Gerais,] Brazil), Patrick Charpenel (collector, Mexico), Eduardo Costantini (collector, Argentina), Cesar Gaviria (collector, Colombia), Juan Carlos Verme (collector, Peru), Alicia de Arteaga (art journalist and editor for the cultural supplement adn [DNA] of the daily La Nación, Buenos Aires), Ana Paula Cohen (freelance curator, Brazil), Beatriz Lopez (freelance curator, Colombia), Abaseh Mirvali (freelance curator and producer, Mexico and Berlin), Rodrigo Quijano (freelance curator, Peru), Eva Grinstein (freelance curator, Argentina), Andrea Giunta (writer, curator and researcher, Argentina), David Joselit (professor of art history, Yale University, USA) and Ana Longoni (writer, professor at the University of Buenos Aires, and researcher at the CONICET institute, Buenos Aires). The four Prime Time tables can be viewed online at www.arteBA.org
The presence of internationally renowned figures throughout the Fair was stronger than ever. In the previous edition of arteBA the International Committee was formed, made up of personalities who would serve as de luxe ambassadors around the world, and whose mission it would be to invite collectors and important figures on the international scene into the Fair. In 2011, the International Committee was presided over by Nelly Arrieta de Blaquier and comprised Teresa A.L. de Bulgheroni, Marlise Jozami, Jean-Louis Larivière, Dudu von Thielmann and Ivan de Pineda.
The twentieth edition of arteBA had a strong presence of well-known collectors and professionals from the art world. Prominent among them were Louis and Gail Adler, who for the eighth time traveled from Houston to visit the Fair and participate in the VIP Program. Also present were collectors’ groups from MAM SP, MAM Rio and Mali of Peru. A group of collectors traveled from Germany, under the coordination of Halina von Kempski; among them were designer Oliver Holy and the important collectors Christa Döttinger and Wolfgang Anselmino. Also attending were architect Fernando Romero, David Adjaye, Irene Hoffman, Manuel Mestre of Mexico, and Manuel Aranguren of Venezuela. From Colombia came Gloria Cristina Samper and María Victoria Mahecha of Paralelo10, leading a group of collectors. Within the Itinerary of the VIP Holders in Buenos Aires were visits to private collections, open especially for this occasion.
The daily newspaper La Nación and TV channel TELEFE renewed their commitment as media partners of arteBA, contributing in the form of coverage of contemporary art and the media expansion for the Fair. Thanks also to Nueva Dirección en la Cultura (New Direction in Culture) the Fair was able to be a presence on the streets of the city.
The international press turned out at arteBA, at the invitation of Th!nk, the consulting firm for brand and communications development that has worked with the Fair for five years now. For this twentieth edition of the Fair, Th!nk managed to attract Wallpaper*, Town & Country, The Selby, Jet Set Report and Architectural Digest, from the USA; Complot and Jockey Club, de Venezuela; Wish Report, Bamboo, O Globo and Trip, from Brazil; Paula and El Observador, from Uruguay; among other media.
For the sixth year in a row, Grupo MASS+ was responsible for arteBA’s public relations. On the premise of encouraging local collecting, intensifying circulation in the communications media, and creating strategic synergy with brands, Grupo MASS+ had a space that became the social meeting-place at the Fair.
Local and foreign publications had their spaces too at arteBA.2011. Participating this year were: Arte & Antigüedades – Arte Actual (Argentina), Art Nexus (USA), Arte al Día (Argentina), Arte al Límite (Chile), ArtMotiv (Peru), Dasartes (Brazil), Hoy Arte Hoy (Argentina), Irreversible Magazine (USA), Magenta (Argentina), Mapa de las Artes (Argentina) and Qué Hacemos (Argentina).
This year arteBA doubled its wager and celebrated its twentieth edition boosting the Museum Acquisitions Program. Continuing with the activity it begun in 2010, the Franklin Rawson Museum of Fine Arts, in the Province of San Juan purchased a work by Bastón Diaz, the 2009 Serie de la Rivera [Waterfront Series], 190 x 160 x 100 cm, from the gallery Sasha D. Espacio de Arte. This program initiative also brought in the Museo de Arte Tigre de Buenos Aires, which acquired a work by Mariano Sapia entitled Pantalla [Screen], oil on canvas, 70 x 100cm, from the gallery Gachi Prieto, and another work, by Eugenio Diomede, from the Galería Van Eyck. Salta’s MAC-Museo de Arte Contemporáneo acquired two works, one by Daniel García, Liaisons (Dangereuses), oil on canvas, 150 x 150cm, 1997, from the gallery Zavaleta Lab and the other by artist Nahuel Vecino, Sín título [Untitled], in mixed media on cardboard, 2009-2010, from the gallery Cosmocosa. In addition, Salta’s Museum of Fine Arts acquired a work from the gallery Rubbers by Luis Felipe Noé, entitled Desasosiego [Disquiet], from the series “Noemas o Noeses?”, in mixed media on canvas, 80 x 130cm, from 2008.
Continuing with the acquisitions program of contemporary art works that it began last year, Manifesto joined the list of institutions which, in the context of the Fair, contribute to boosting the contemporary art market by purchasing new works for their collections. This time they acquired works by the artists Débora Pierpaoli, Erica Bohm and Nicolás Sarmiento, represented, respectively, by the galleries 713 Arte Contemporáneo, Chez Vautier and Big Sur.
The fourth edition of the EN OBRA (“Work In Progress”) Prize also took place this year. This important initiative distinguishes emerging artists’ production within Barrio Joven Chandon. Contributors to this year’s prize were the firm Tantum, Beatriz and Pedro Stier, Leticia Kabusacki, and Juan and Tiny Cambiaso, amassing the sum of $30,000 (thirty thousand Argentine pesos) which was distributed among the winners as a non-acquisition stimulus prize. A separate organizing team made up of Alejandro Ikonicoff and Roxana Sucari was entrusted with appointing an independent awarding jury of six Argentine collectors. The winners this year were Nicolás Novali, represented by the Bonjour Galería, who received the First Prize of $15,000 (fifteen thousand Argentine pesos), Jazmín Berakha, from the gallery Miau Miau, who was awarded the second prize of $5,000 (five thousand pesos); and two galleries each received $5,000 (five thousand Argentine pesos) for their artistic and curatorial offerings: Bonjour Galería and Mite.
On the occasion of celebrating twenty continuous years of the Fair, the arteBA Foundation paid a tribute to one of arteBA’s founders, the engineer Jacobo Fiterman, conferring on him the Premio x arteBA established four years ago. With this prize, arteBA specially recognizes those persons who each year have been instrumental in making important activities for the Foundation a reality.
To make Buenos Aires a major cultural center has been the great aspiration of the organizers of the Fair since its inception. Today, we can justly celebrate that such a goal became an evident fact. arteBA 2011 has emerged as the historic edition it deserved to be.
The arteBA Foundation thanks its main sponsor PETROBRAS, its partners BANCO CIUDAD, MERCEDES-BENZ and ZURICH, and its Silver Sponsors as well: the Secretariat of Culture of the Presidency of the Nation, the Ministry of Culture of the City Government of Buenos Aires, Arnet, New Direction in Culture, Lan, La Rural, Patio Bullrich, Arcos Dorados, Chandon, Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, BlackBerry and CITI.
