Carlos Cruz Diez " Color in Space and Time"

0 Comments


"Through color I experience a feeling of complete identification with space. I am totally free" Carlos Cruz Diez


This highly recommended museum is celebrating its 10th anniversary. And, in this occasion, it is the museum the one that is giving us a wonderful present: the exhibition of Carlos Cruz-Diez.: “El color en el espacio y en el tiempo” (Color in space and time).

Born in Caracas, he has lived and worked in Paris since 1960. He first emerged as an artist in the mid 1950s as part of the Kinetic Art Movement in Paris. His work has been dedicated to showing how color can be transformed into an autonomous event capable of invading space.


The incorporation of new series has continuosly evolved over the last five decades through the incorporation of new materials, supports, and assembling techniques, resulting in an extremely rich and arresting array of visual effects.




Chromo-Indiference Environment by Carlos Cruz Diez

Cruz-Diez ‘ works are in the permanent collections of institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Tate Modern, London, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Cologne.


In Cruz Diez´s case, the label “kinetic” or “cinetico”, became the initial , generic branding that stuck, regardless of any other outstanding trait embedded in this work, such as color. And yet, it may be time to acknowledge that, to the extent that he did not participate in Le Mouvement – the influential 1995 show held at the Galerie Denise René in Paris, which is credited for having launched the Kinetic Art movement – such a marker is not only inaccurate but misleading. As the artist himself explains in the exhibition catalogue, while Kinetic art provided a starting point or an operational matrix upon which to ground his proposal, the notion of “movement” was never the single aim or raison d´etre of this unedited project to approach both painting and color in quite different terms.


This exhibition will be in Buenos Aires until March 2012.

You cannot miss this unforgettable experience!!!

Buenos Aires city is daily transformed in time to tango and new rhythms amazes in every corner.

Buenos Aires is also full of places to watch and learn how to dance tango. Every evening old ballrooms, cafes and clubs host milongas where beginners and pros from around the world dance counter-clockwise on the dance floor.

These tango clubs play both classic and modern songs: echoes of important singers such as Carlos Gardel, Anibal Troilo and Astor Piazzolla, meet with new contemporary styles, different voices and chords that freely express the same passion.

Tango sets the pulse of this cosmopolitan city.



Tango Tours
Buenos aires has several tango neighbourhoods because of their history, their songs, their souls. Boedo, with its literary tradition and historic cafes and pubs, is one of the most famous ones. It is precisely in this district, where the well-known porteño corner – San Juan and Boedo – is located, which was immortalized by the poet Homero Manzi in the lyrics of the tango “Sur”.

Top Peruvian cuisine in Buenos Aires

2 Comments



Sipan opens in Palermo Hollywood

There has been an international boom in regards to Peruvian gastronomy. Over the past years, talking about Peruvian food has been something very common. At present there are over 70 Peruvian restaurants in Buenos Aires. These restaurants cover the entire market spectrum, from the most exclusive Palermo Hollywood to the eateries in Once and Abasto.



About Sipan


Since its opening in 2007, Sipan is one of the top names in Peruvian cuisine in Buenos Aires. In 2011 opened its second store in Palermo, inside the boutique hotel The Palermitano, adjacent to the restaurant Casa Cruz.



Discreet and elegant, offers a varied menu of drinks and dishes like ceviche, tiraditos, chalaquitas (a sort of Peruvian tapas), rolls and wok dishes, all carefully prepared and presented. Due to its high quality the Government of Peru named it as the best Peruvian restaurant in Argentina. But it has two key differences from its first location.


Firstly, being a cevichería, it offers a brief menu, which emphasizes on cold dishes as appetizers, Nikkei rolls, ceviche and tiraditos. Secondly, appearance is impeccable. A bar at the entrance, long sushi bar and lounge with open kitchen and lovely heated patio (with its own cocktail bar), with four living rooms for ten people each.

As for the decor, contrasts prevail: a wall bears a huge photograph of a Spondylus (oyster lucky red) and the other colourful posters of aesthetics bailantera (brought from Lima), announcing quartet music shows and tropical.

Handmade glass tableware spotless and very good service: more than 40 employees to serve a maximum of 98 people.


Seafood is at the heart of Peruvian cookery. It is from the Pacific that Peru's two greatest dishes come. These are ceviche (spelled ceviche or cebiche in Peru) and tiradito. The former is fresh, raw fish, often sole, cut into chunks and "cooked" in lime juice; the latter is fresh, completely raw sole or a native fish called corvina, thinly sliced and covered with one or more of Peru's innumerable sauces, many based in aji or another hot Peruvian pepper, rocoto.
For entrées, you can choose a "ship" to try different appetizers and rolls. The ceviche made of sole, the shells with parmesan cheese, the “empanadas” and especially the “aji de gallina with prawns”. Yummy!
Among the main courses, I highly recommend the Sipan tacu tacu with shrimps. The rice with Nikkei seafood, anticuchos and the sole “a lo macho” are fabulous. The portions are large ( good to share ).
The suggestion of the house is to request one entry per person and share a main dish.



The best tasting dessert in Sipan is “degustación de suspiros” (Sighs ).

As a bonus the restaurant has a pisco bar. Its cocktail menu offers a wide variety of aromatic sours ( with with ginger, passion fruit, coca leaves, etc ). Also you can choose an elegant Piscotini Dry (Martini with classic pisco), a real Piojito ( similar to mojito) and many more options. All served in sleek glasses.


The cost ranges from 100 to 130 pesos. The diversity that is felt and lived is so important, and besides that…it is delicious.

Important Tip! Porteños eat late, so you can arrive at just about any restaurant by 1 p.m. for lunch and 8:30 p.m. for dinner and be assured of a table without a wait. Virtually all restaurants that specialize in fresh seafood -- cevicherias -- are open only for lunch, usually between noon and 4 pm.

A New Museum in Buenos Aires

0 Comments



Today I visited the “Bicentennial museum in Buenos Aires". This museum opened on May 24, 2011. It is located where the fortress of Buenos Aires (1580) and the old customs house (aduana Taylor, 1855) used to be. That is, right behind the “pink house”, our Presidential Palace.


We are speaking about a building that was refurbished and recuperated, not only from the architectural point of view but, also, from an archaeological one. It is possible to walk among the old walls and arcades that, in the old times, used to house the customs.



You can trace two hundred years of argentine history, from the revolution against spain in 1810 to the present administration of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, our current president.

To my surprise, I discovered excellent paintings by very well-known painters, like, Luis Felipe Noe, Octavio Fioravanti, Aberto Schwartz, Luis Benedit, among others.


There is a huge painting of Juan Domingo Peron and Eva Duarte painted by Numa Ayrinhac (a French-Argentinian painter). All the paintings belong to the presidential collection


There is a special place dedicated to the refurbished mural of David Alfaro Siqueiros, called “Ejercicio Plastico”. Siqueiros, an active communist, Siqueiros (1896-1974) was a strong advocate of public art. He, Diego Rivera and Miguel Clemente Orozco were among Mexico's most famous muralists.


Moreover, being you in Buenos Aires, there is something you cannot miss “a very nice café” to enjoy lunch or a good expresso.


The museum opens from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 6 pm. Admission free. Bear in mind that all explanations are in Spanish and there are no English or French translations. If you want to learn more and visit this hidden gem , contact us, ideas turisticas, the best private tours in Buenos Aires.

I am looking forward to seeing you in our beautiful city, Ana Lia Cecchino.

Patagonia: Where to find Penguins and Whales

0 Comments

Patagonia
When to go

Argentina is so big that each region has its own climate. This means that there is always somewhere to go, whatever the time of year. Summer is from December to March, Spring from September to November, Autumn from March to May and Winter from June to August.

Generally speaking, the best time to visit Patagonia is from October to April, or between June and September for skiing. If you are interested in fauna watching, you should not miss the largest Magellan Penguin Colony of Patagonia which is located in Punta Tombo.




Punta Tombo: The most important Magellan Penguin Colony in Patagonia.
Almost a million of penguins arrive at this every year in order to breed. The first penguins arrive in September and stay here up to mid March but the best season to see them is after November, once the babies are born.

One of the greatest features of this Reservation is the fact that you can literally walk among the penguins, follow them and learn their habits, see how they feed their babies, the rites of pairing, the fights for the defense of their territories, how they build their nests, and the restless walks they take to and from the sea. In other words, you can closely watch these tender little animals like you never imagined you could...

There is one requisite: even if you are inches away from a penguin, you must never touch or bother it. You must not forget (not even for a moment) that you are inside a fauna reservation, a special place devoted to preserve this species and its natural habitat. Besides, although penguins are harmless and they are not aggressive at all, if they feel threatened they will defend themselves with their strong, sharp beak.




This fauna reservation was created in 1979, by means of a decree of the Chubut Province, with the purpose of protecting one of the sites with the most diverse fauna within Argentina, and the greatest continental Magellan Penguins colony.

General Features
Punta Tombo is surrounded by the typical lonesome and arid landscapes of the Patagonia Plateau. But its emptiness is just an illusion; if you learn to observe in detail, you will discover all the life wealth hidden in its bushes and under the endless looking sky. Of course, there are also lambs (typical Patagonian livestock), as well as guanacos and choiques (ostriches), maras (Patagonian hares), foxes, and martinetas.


Once you start getting closer to the coast, you will be surprised by a hectic fauna activity. This rocky territory hosts a great quantity of sea birds: southern seagulls, skúas, royal and black necked cormorants, Antarctic pigeons and petrels. Also, these coasts are frequently visited by sea lions as well as the southern whales, dolphins and orcas.


Whale-watching season
Península Valdés, Patagonia

From July to December, Southern Right whales can be seen from the coast of the Valdés Peninsula and Puerto Madryn. They migrate to the peninsula every year to mate.

The cities of Puerto Madryn, Trelew, Rawson and the little village of Puerto Pirámides, (this one in the Peninsula de Valdés), are the entrance to the extraordinary world of the Southern Whale and the Commerson's Dolphins. Every year they come to the coast of Patagonia to accomplish their eternal rite of mating.


An excursion of sea fauna watching
The watching is done from Pirámides and there are six companies authorized in the Province for this. They take the necessary care not to produce environmental impact and not to alter the whales' behaviour.
The trip starts going along the coast in both directions and then getting one or two miles into the sea, to get in touch with the whales.

The first stop is generally at La Lobería (sea lion colony) which is perpendicular to Puerto Pirámides and has got 2000 specimens.

The sailing along the coast lets also watch many cormorant colonies. They build their nests against the cliff and there they breed and raise their babies. You can also see other specimens of the coast bird fauna.

Then the ship gets far from the coast, the engine is stopped and for a moment there is plain silence interrupted only by the sounds of penguins, seagulls, gulls and cormorants. It's the moment of waiting… somebody watches a group of birds at the distance. The ship gets closer and suddenly, when the whole group is attentive, something silver and white jumps next to the ship, and the strong sound of a body splashing the sea is heard.

Let us help you plan a perfect trip to the Puerto Madryn area. All the essential info about lodging, transportation, climate and much more will be provided by our experienced travel agents.
