Palais de Glace

Art in La Recoleta.

This building from 1910 was an ice-skating rink in the Buenos Aires neighbourhood of Recoleta, and only became an exhibition hall in the 1960s. Its permanent collection comprises 1020 works, including paintings, sculptures, engravings, pictures, acrylics, watercolours, photos, ceramics, textiles, frescos and new mediums and installations. These increase annually, as it plays host to the National Prize of Fine Arts Awards. The Palais school offers discussions, courses and musical events from schools all over the country. These, along with the frescos decorating the interior, painted by students from the Alfredo Guido School in 1934, have made the Palais de Glace an important player in Argentinean contemporary art.
