Art: Luis Felipe Noé at Bellas Artes
In an exhibition featuring 120 pieces that range from paintings and drawings to installations, the Fine Arts Museum is offering a glimpse at the evolution of Luis Felipe Noé’s work over the course of 60 years. Having explored different artistic movements throughout his career, the result is an exhibition that allows visitors to look into several significant periods in art history, without Noé’s work ever losing his so-called “chaos aesthetic.” Curated by Cecilia Ivanchevich, the display is not set up in chronological order as one might expect, but is presented through the window of three key moments in Noé’s work: that where his awareness of the historical moment he was living in took over, that where his fragmented vision of reality was more important, and finally, that where nature and vitality become the protagonists of his work.
Tuesday through Friday from 11am to 8pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 8pm at Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (Av. Libertador 1473). Free admission.

Music: Sebastián Macchi presents Piano Solito

Pianist and composer Sebastián Macchi is presenting his record Piano Solito which, as its name gives away, is made up entirely of songs for the piano. Seven of the nine compositions that make it up were written by Macchi himself, the other two being arrangements of El arriero by Atahualpa Yupanqui and Canten señores cantores, a typical carnavalito of the Andes region. The record includes, as a sort of bonus track, an improvised version of the prelude in Charly García’s 20 trajes verdes. The cover of the album, minimalistic and beautiful, was also made by Macchi. Although this concert will only feature the piano, it promises to be powerful and lovely. The presentation will include guest artists such as Cecilia Pahl singing, Ana Archetti playing the accordion and singing and Juan Pablo Di Leone on the flute.
Friday, July 14, at 9pm at Café Vinilo (Gorriti 3780).
Tickets at $180 through or at the venue.

Theatre: Himalaya at Ladran Sancho
Written and directed by Juan Seré, Himalaya is into its second season already after receiving critical acclaim for its first season. The play tells the story of a group of sherpas — an ethnic group from the Himalayas — and a group of mountain climbers,  who meet in the rise to the top of Mount Manaslu. The two clans are as different as day and night, and the encounter between the two will spark a dreamlike journey with an oneiric tone highlighted by the outstanding scenery. Everything in Himalaya seems to work like a cog in a well-oiled machine: the performance of the twelve actors on stage at the same time, the costume design and the music played live make this an overall unique play.
Sundays at 6pm at Ladran Sancho (Guardia Vieja 3811).
Tickets at $150 available through

Music: Manu Sija presents Chango Solo
Manu Sija has quickly become a household name in Argentine contemporary music circles thanks, for the most part, to his incredible talent with looping. It is not enough for Sija to be able to play every instrument; he makes sure to actually play the guitar, the bass, the keyboards, the violin, the drums and to sing, joining all these sounds together thanks to the magic of the looper. Thus, as a sort of one-man band, he has impressed audiences all around the continent while still paying tribute to the musicians and folklore typical of his native province, Tucumán. This time, he is presenting his third record ChangoSolo which, much like his previous work, goes over improvised sounds mixed with Latin American folk, playing his own versions of songs by Violeta Parra and Atahualpa Yupanqui, among others.
Sunday, July 16 at 7pm at Usina del Arte
(Agustín R. Caffarena 1).
Free admission. Tickets must be picked up in advance.
