Known for his extravagance and for owning the Faena Hotel and Universe, which was designed by Philippe Starck, Alan Faena bets on art once more on his new Puerto Madero venture, the Alan Faena Arts Center.

The stunning new addition to the city’s cultural scene is still brand new after being inaugurated in September, and is showcasing the centers’ opening Ernesto Neto exhibit  which was curated by the Tate Modern’s Jessica Morgan.  An impressive crochet sculpture/installation partly suspended from the roof,  which visitors can walk through barefoot, achieves the participation that the renown Brazilian artist looks to generate with his sinuous interactive pieces.

The exhibition is open from Tue-Sun from 11am-7pm and entry fee is 20 pesos.
