In Buenos Aires, we went to the Malba, Museo de Arte Latinamericano de Buenos Aires, a ten year old gallery filled with contemporary South American art.

Loved this crazy wooden bench. You can see the tendrils climbing down the walls in the previous photos.

I kind of fell for Senor Garabito’s work. They are strange paintings, to be sure, but the drawing is so gorgeous, and I love the awkwardness of them. Why this skiddy guy, repeated, with no pants on? Why not, I guess.

and of course, Ms Frida.

and of course, Frida Kahlo's Self Portrait with Monkey and Parrot.
