Palermo Gallery Walk
In a city overflowing with art, where do you start?
The Palermo Gallery Walk curates a tour of innovative contemporary art in a flourishing, emerging arts scene, and leads you on an insightful, visually stimulating tour of some of the best art being produced in South America.
Enticed by unique, spacious abandoned industrial buildings - artists and curators have been moving to Palermo and Villa Crespo to open workshops and galleries. This extended neighborhood is now home to dozens of galleries, and is establishing itself as an international hub for contemporary art.
During this interactive private walking tour, you will explore the growing, avante-garde art scene of this emerging market by speaking one on one with the curators, gallery owners and artists who are constructing the local art scene. Your educated guide will share insight about art trends, artists, and the galleries. The tour will visit 5 - 8 galleries, and will also pass by several murals by renowned and anonymous street artists that are challenging established paradigms of art production and display.

Group tours are offered every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 4:30 to approximately 7:30pm. The tour will start in-front of a gallery in Villa Crespo, then cross over to Palermo Hollywood and Palermo Soho.
