Your Weekly Event Roundup: Sept 7 – 14

Posted on September 7, 2015 by Kevin Vaughn in VISIT BUENOS AIRES

A hand picked selection of our favorite things to see, eat, listen to, dance with this week in Buenos Aires.

See An Art Show

Turn Thursday into an epic evening of art openings. The Bienal of Art Joven will be hosting a 6 artist installation at the warehouse turned art space cheLA in the Parque Patricios Design District on Thursday. Then head across town to the Praxis where another collective art installation will be having it’s opening night. Un mundo feliz features work by 7 artists tasked with creating work that reflects the future of urban architecture. Finally move along to the MALBA, which will be recreating Federico Manuel Perlatta Ramos famous installation Nosotros afuera, with work by other artists in homage to Ramos. For the less ambitious, Hollywood in Cambodia will be opening a show with work by Dario Suarez (better known as street artist Malatesta on Wednesday.

Act Like A Tourist

Every Sunday you can check out Tardes de Bolero at the brew house turned cultural center La Munich in Puerto Madero. The event is a twist on a Sunday afternoon tea and merienda, where guests enjoy tea and snacks while a theater production transports guests back to the time of the boleros. The weather is set to be sunny all weekend long, and is the perfect time to take a city wide tour with our friends at Biking BA. Tango aficionados can take advantage of free tango classes every Sunday at el Museo de Carlos Gardel, the actual home of Gardel and his mother Berta that has since been transformed into a cultural center honoring the late singer.

Catch A Film

The traveling Cine Club Dynamo organizes 16mm projections in bars and cultural spaces across the city. This Wednesday at 9pm you can catch one of Roman Polanski’s first feature length films, Repulsion, at the Gorlami. If you didn’t get a chance to see last year’s BAFICI hit, the American horror film It Follows, it opened in theaters across the city last Thursday. A throwback to scary movies of the 1970s, it’s being hailed as a return to classic horror and is truly worth catching on the big screen. A film series about African-Argentines begins at the CC de la Cooperación; every Tuesday through mid-September the center will be projecting films about the black experience in Argentina, with talks from directors and protagonists. The Korean Film Festival also begins this Wednesday through next week, with showings of eleven different contemporary Korean films at the Palermo Cinemark. Check out the full programming here.

Eat Good Food

The Bazaa is back! The Centro Cultural Nichia Gakuin will be hosting a Japanese food festival with all your favorite dishes: sushi, okonomiyaki, nigiri, gyoza, and mochi (!) this Saturday. Every Wednesday night from 7-9pm Il Posto Mercato hosts Miercoles de Vinos, which invites local wine producers to host tastings; the tastings are free and there is always a selection of inexpensive tapas. Closed door restaurant Paladar will be trading in their contemporary Argentine menus for sushi dinners for 2 every Thursday of September.


Let’s Party!

The place to be this week will be at the opening of Andii Diedishei’s (for those of us who remember MSTRPLN, may she rest in peace) new dance party Reset on Thursday night. Doors open at 9pm and you can get in free until 2am, message your names to the FB page. For the salsa fans out there, La Malanga will be turning up the heat at the Matienzo this Friday with their brand of salsa brava at Caribbean dance party Suena el caribe.

Check Out A Concert

Take your choice of two fantastic concerts this Wednesday night. There is still time to grab some nose bleeders for the Veloso Caetano and Gilberto Gil show. This is a rare opportunity to catch these septuagenarians, and easily Brazil’s most internationally known artists, playing together. They will be playing Luna Park Wednesday and Thursday. Across town in Abasto at the Konex, Juana Molina will be opening the Bienal de Arte Joven. This is a free show, so be sure to line up early if you want to get into the 9pm show. For more shows, check out Olimipica tonight (Monday) at Sheldon Bar at 9pm, the Puente Discos Showcase on Thursday at Beat Flow at 11pm, or Diente de madera and Sombrero at Naranja Verde on Friday at 11pm, and Martin Minervini on Saturday at 9pm at the Konex.
