Adriana Varejao is one of the best-known Brazilian artists of her generation. Her works deal with themes regarding art and religious history, Brazilian history and colonialism, optical illusions, maps, travel, and oceans.  Using mixed media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installations, and photography, she has produced a broad spectrum of works from the nineties to the present day.

From the 10th of April to the 10th of June, for the first time in Argentina, a retrospective of her art will be on display at the MALBA. The exhibition will feature over 40 of her most significant pieces from different periods that will be arranged in chronological order and will include the installations presented at the 22nd and 24th Sao Paolo Biennials.

The MALBA is open from midday to 8pm every day except Tuesdays. The stylish museum also carries out film screenings and has a great cafe and restaurant.  Avenida Figueroa Alcorta 3415, 4808-6500.
