Known as the ‘travelling art festival’, the aim of ARFA is to introduce Argentina’s art to the world one city at a time, and come October, KL will host a myriad of artworks from a curated collection of artists from Buenos Aires.
From paintings and digital art to textile masterpieces, the diverse showcase which will be on display at the National Visual Arts Gallery in KL illustrates why Argentina has risen to become a role model for arts and culture throughout the Americas and the world.
“We want to expand and communicate the intangible richness of Argentine cultural values to the world through hosting this festival in different major international cities,” said Marcela Temes, General Director of ARFA and Board Advisor of the Latino Art Museum of Pomona where last year’s festival was held.
