Palais de Glace-Salas Nacionales de Cultura, Buenos Aires

4.2
Take in some contemporay art in a historical building at Palais de Glace-Salas Nacionales de Cultura. Upon construction in 1911, the Belle Epoque building (styled after its Parisienne namesake) served as an ice skating rink and social club, then later as a tango dance hall. Remodelling in the 1930s altered the exterior and converted the interior space into an art gallery; today, it hosts rotating exhibits of paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography, and ceramics.

    I have made visits to several photographic exhibitions, the latest were the made as overview of the best photos of events in 2016 and Los Angeles de Charly, a nice tribute reminder of Charly García on the musical level from times which is separated from Sui Generis to the present

    It is an interesting place to visit interesting exhibit. At this time there are very good photographs of Charlie Garcia and the Argentina press photos and a little Internacional.Las photos speak alone and a lot! It is free. It is worthwhile if one is in the Recoleta area.

    The Palais is a beautiful building that depends on culture. The building lacks maintenance. On the other hand, you always have a good calendar of events, often very interesting and free. At this time highly recommended sample of photojournalism from the Association of photojournalists (ARGRA) is always on the first floor and on the ground floor "Los Ángeles de Charly", with the genius of the national rock, Charly García, photos taken by Andy Cherniavsky, Hilda Lizarazu and Nora Lezano.

    Very nice Exhibition Centre! I'm going every year to sample of Photojournalism that is excellent. I went just to see "Los Ángeles de Charly" seemed badly exposed. Very dirty walls, bad light and glass works that reflected the light and not the photographs can be seen.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out.
