Education and Outreach

As part of our mission to help promote the city’s urban art culture we work with an extensive network of private and public educational bodies, organising tours, workshops and talks for local and international students. We also work with social organisations to help promote the scene and engage people outside of our traditional reach.

Centro Conviven is community centre in Ciudad Oculta, which supports families and children who live in the socially and economically deprived neighbourhood. The centre runs activities for the children, including trips outside of their neighbourhood aimed at showing them different sides of the city they live in.

We were proud to collaborate with Centro Conviven by creating a special tour and workshop for the children, introducing them to urban art and showing them new techniques to paint and express themselves.

We are always happy to work with educational institutions and social organisations who are interested in learning more about the scene and engaging with its artists. Please get in touch if you feel there are opportunities for us to collaborate.

The new street art group exhibition “Buenos Aires Calling” presents a well worth seeing insight into the Argentinian street art scene.

Turbo Gallery in Arte BA 2010

The Turbo gallery at Arte BA 2010 managed to successfully convey the impact of street art in an indoor setting.

Dominating the outside of the Turbo area were huge pieces by Tester, rundontwalk, Tec and Buenos Aires Stencil. The artworks made such an impact not just because of their size, but also as they’d been created on found objects – metal grids, wooden doors and slats. The pieces were a hit with buyers with several works being snapped up straight away.

Doma and HIC crew, the art collectives who run Turbo Gallery and Hollywood Cambodia respectively, continue to produce artwork at a prolific rate and represent some of the finest young artistic talents in Buenos Aires.

Their growing success in the contemporary art world is testament to their talent, energy and determination to bring their art to the public through streets and galleries, without compromising their vanguard principles.

Tec – Ruta 9 project

Tec’s latest project saw him travel up the largely abandoned ruta 9, taking inspiration from the surrounding and transforming derelict structures.

The project was captured in his short film “Ruta 9”, which is currently being shown at select film festivals.

graffitimundo : Street art for the people in Buenos Aires It’s only fitting, then, that graffitimundo, a company that gives graffiti tours in English, sheds light on the artists and their processes in an accessible way. Marina Charles, who leads the tours, doesn’t get bogged down with curatorial jargon that means nothing to the average viewer. She takes visitors through the history of the graffiti renaissance after the dictatorship, pointing out key art and artists off the beaten path from Chacarita to Villa Crespo and ending in Palermo.
