arteBA Foundation presents the committees and curators of its next edition and invites galleries to apply for arteBA 2020 (until October 15) and Utopia Fair (until November 4). Both events will take place from April 16 to April 19 at La Rural fairground, Buenos Aires.

Deepening the experience of its first edition, this year Utopia becomes a parallel fair in the context of arteBA 2020 at La Rural fairground, Buenos Aires.

With the aim of recognizing the multiple formats of exhibition and distribution of contemporary production, Utopia Fair opens its call to galleries, spaces managed by artists, non-profit and for-profit organizations and other experimental marketing platforms that focus on the most recent productions, encouraging risk-taking in the presentation and production of the works that are exhibited there. 

Among other novelties, arteBA, in its 29th edition, is expanding and proposing new formats, new participation procedures and new guest curators: Solo Show will have a new curatorial team and we are launching the participation through an open call for the Cardinal Site section.
