The Museo Moderno invites you to reserve a ticket for a Post-Conference Tour to Salta in the Argentinian North-West, 12–13 November 2023. Known as ‘Salta La Linda’ (Salta The Beautiful), the city is set in gorgeous Andean landscapes and showcases an exceptionally important tradition of visual arts informed by the landscape, local materials including red soils and clays and natural dyes, indigenous local cultures in the realms of weaving and pottery, and major cultural crossovers with modern and contemporary art.
On Sunday November 12, we will be taking an early flight from Jorge Newbery Airport in the heart of Buenos Aires (15 mins from the hotel) to Salta, where we will have the chance to visit the city’s standout spaces and exhibitions, including the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MAC) and the Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes de Salta, which, among other shows, will be housing the group exhibition of Wichí artists Lhajus Lhenek, curated by the Wichí artists’ and poets’ collective Centro Cultural TEWOK from the north of Salta Province. We will also visit the legendary tapestry studio of ‘Pajita’ and Rodrigo García Bes, as well as the vital art space Remota, run by artist Guido Yannitto and gallery owner Gonzalo Elías.
On Monday November 13, we will be setting off early in the morning and travelling in the comfort of coaches through one of the most spectacular mountainous landscapes in the world to the Andean town of Cafayate, home to a vibrant community of contemporary artists. We will pause along the way to enjoy the many views and places of interest, such as the Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat) and the Amphitheatre, a rock formation that will feature an on-site project by Cafayate-born artist Javier Soria Vázquez. Lunch will be served in one of the local vineyards in the heart of the Calchaquí Valleys, after which we can take in the studio museum of the late artist Calixto Mamaní in the village. Finally, we will immerse ourselves in the open-air project by local artist Florencia Sadir. We then return to Salta to take an evening flight to Buenos Aires, arriving in the capital on Monday 13 November at 11.15 p.m.
