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.

Situated in the beautiful, vibrant little area near Boca Stadium, we saw the incredible Ron Mueck exhibition. Huge, with incredible detail... a little bit freaky... and a giant chicken. What more could you ask for in an exhibition? The gallery was beautiful, and the staff were really friendly. Very reasonably priced too

brilliant rainy afternoon project to see PROA...great local and emerging artist works. The rest of the day you can watch tango in the street, walk the caminito and hang out in small local cafes...
