This is an excellent exhibition center wisely designed and modern. The restaurant upstairs has a colourful view from its balcony: the old bridge of La Boca, and its surroundings can be seen, and it is the very La Boca that makes it, at the same time, diffulct to get at fr.the security point of view.

It´s a mark in Buenos Aires. You must been there. You can have a lunch or drink a coffee while touring the different pieces of art. You can buy a souvenir at store before leaving.

Proa has only 4 rooms (3 on the ground floor and 1 behind the first floor store, plus a little exhibition area along the second floor restaurant). There are only traveling exhibits -- no permanent collection. It was all done very well. I'm not a fan of modern art, but did enjoy this gallery. The restaurant was good. Bonus: the... More

Excelent space right on the port in the barrio of La Boca.Easy to get to from the city center on the bus.I have seen a few exhibits here - Ron Mueck was the most recent and very well attended and presented. Make it part of your visit to La Boca, where you can easily spend several hours.

Attended the exhibition of hyperrealistic sculptures of Australian artist Ron Mueck sponsored by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. Check its website,http://proa.org/eng/information.php as exhibits are updated frequently. If you appreciate culture and modern architecture, you cannot miss this amazing site surrounded by La Boca.

I love this place. Not only because their cause is something I really share... but they have made of La Boca (the neighbourhood where its based), a more artistic and cultural place. The view from their cafe, is worth the long ride there!

Went to a Ron Mueck exhibit here and it was lovely. In a central part of La Boca, beautiful exhibit space. Worth a trip just to go here.

This venue has a youthful, left-of-center political feel. The current exhibit deals with artists engaged in women's, student, and other disenfranchised popular movements in Latin America. Besides being visually entertained, you will be informed about what is going on in the political sphere.

Saw a great exhibit, called "Acción Urgente", about different Human Rights movements throughout Latin America. A very good bookshop. I was only sorry I got there so late and couldn't check out the rooftop cafe.
