Taking place from September 6 to 12, 2018, the Art Basel Cities Week in Buenos Aires, supported by Buenos Aires City Government, will be a unique opportunity for local and international visitors to discover the Buenos Aires' art scene through public art exhibitions, installations, performances and events across the Argentine capital. Under the artistic direction of Cecilia Alemani, the week presents 'Hopscotch (Rayuela)', a multilayered experience that connects visual arts, urban spaces and the city’s histories in unexpected ways. 'Hopscotch' will be accompanied by a Cultural Partner Program organized with over 20 of the city's leading arts institutions and a Talks Program of over 30 Artist Talks and Masterclasses. With the participation of 40 galleries, Buenos Aires will also be host to the very first Gallery Weekend Buenos Aires. Art Basel Cities is supported by UBS as Global Lead Partner.
The 18 participating artists selected by Cecilia Alemani as part of 'Hopscotch' comprise of Eduardo Basualdo, Pia Camil, Maurizio Cattelan, Gabriel Chaile, Alex Da Corte, Santiago de Paoli, Narcisa Hirsch, David Horvitz, Leandro Katz, Barbara Kruger, Luciana Lamothe, Ad Minoliti, Eduardo Navarro, Alexandra Pirici, Mika Rottenberg, Mariela Scafati, Vivian Suter and Stan VanDerBeek.
