A conversation with Mariana Enriquez

1st November, 7.30 pm

The Cinema Museum

María Luisa Bemberg was one of the most important woman film directors to emerge not just from Argentina but from Latin America as a whole. Her powerful feminine sensibility, combined with a willingness to satirise (or even condemn) the aristocratic class from which she herself stemmed, made her an enormously influential figure.

The film will be introduced by Adam Feinstein.

5th to 8th November
Ruben Alterio Art Exhibition

Argentine Ambassador´s Residence - Free entry 

Born in Buenos Aires, Ruben Alterio established his studio in Paris in 1973 and has since dedicated himself entirely to his artwork.
His work spans a range of genres and forms of artistic expression, having collaborated with the happenings of the performance group Urban Sax and participated in productions at the Powder Theatre. He has also created the décor and costumes for both Nicolas Le Riche’s R.V.B. coreography and Marie-Claude Pietragalla’s ballet Don Quixote, as well as illustrated editions dedicated to the shows of Alfredo Arias.
Described by one critic as the embodiment of Baudelaire’s 'Painter of Modern Life’, noted by another for the theatricality that exudes from his canvasses and for the way in which he inscribes the gesture involved in the thick brush strokes into his work, Alterio remains unwavering in his passion for painting and sketching.

Perota Chingo LIVE

Rich Mix

Argentinian band Perotá Chingó is a project in constant transformation that today embarks on a new musical and conceptual chapter. It’s been eight years since the summer of 2011 when the video of the song “Rie Chinito” became a viral phenomenon with more than 21 million views to date, and now the band is extending the boundaries of its acoustic style, interweaving folklore, the ancestral evocation of voices and the technological power of electronic beats.

Julia Ortiz and Dolores Aguirre are childhood friends entwined in a musical adventure. Having been touring the world for the best part of the last decade, they now bring their full live show to London for their UK debut.

9th to 10th November - 12pm
Ludotecnia by Jorge Crowe

V&A Museum of Childhood - Free entry 

Join Buenos Aires-based artist Jorge Crowe for an electric music performance on a mixing desk made from toys and gadgets.

A colourful, playful and quirky show for children and adults alike, ‘Ludotecnia’ has been performed in 25 cities overseas and is being brought to the UK for the first time with this free, live set for children and adults at the V&A Museum of Childhood.

Crowe spent over a decade working at his toy lab (Laboratorio de Juguete) in Argentina, teaching the use of electronics as creative tools – a project which informs Ludotecnia.
A cross between a sound engineer’s mixing desk and a toymakers workbench, Crowe will activate an army of plastic robots and gadgets adapted to produce and respond to sound, building up a chiming electronic soundscape, while psychedelically colourful projections generated from filming the devices at work flow over the walls of the performance space.

Javier de Aubeyzon Art Exhibition - Legends & Industrial Cathedrals

Argentine Ambassador´s Residence - Free entry 

Javier de Aubeyzon will present two of the series in which he has been working for the last couple of years.
In the series "Legends", the proposal is to show some emblematic characters of British culture and the world. This series not only seeks to pay tribute to outstanding personalities in the world history, but seeks to delve into their character, trying to achieve unique interpretations that help us reflect on their contribution to the world.
As for the series "Industrial Cathedrals", it is intended to show the remains of the influence of  an industrial Age reflected on an architectural style originated in England and propagated to the edges of our city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
All this loaded with an oniric vision but also with a dose of criticism and exaltation.
