I got a phone call Monday evening from Augustín in Art Factory’s reception. A couple of guests had been asking about art galleries in the neighborhood. A bit stumped, I guess, he just decided to call me. So, I organized an impromptu tour for Kim and Suzanne from Holland, and Helena from Barcelona.
They were a smart and engaged bunch and because of that we ended up taking a lot more time than I normally do at each gallery. I love Wussmann Gallery because Paula takes us upstairs to view the gallery’s “back catalog” and more often than not, curator Cesar Menegazzo wanders out to chat. Try doing that in a New York gallery.
But, it was at Zavaleta Lab, across the street from Wussmann, that we saw what we all agreed was the tour’s highlight: Paloma Zamorano’s lovely lightboxes.

I’m giving another San Telmo Art Walk tomorrow. Please book in advance if you’d like to come.
The tour begins at 2 pm at Art Factory Hostel, Piedras 545 in San Telmo and costs AR $25 for Art Factory guests and students with ID.
