Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Teresa developed her passion for dance, foreign languages, and art at an early age. In 2001 she moved to New York to study at the Juilliard School and in 2005 she graduated with a BFA in dance. An interest in different cultures and an eagerness to grow as an artist prompted her to move to Europe, where, for seven years, she worked as a dancer in companies in Germany and Italy. During this time she had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and learned to speak German, Italian, and French, in addition to her native Spanish and English. Back in Argentina, she teaches contemporary dance classes and seminars, and her curiosity and interest in learning led to an MA in administration of cultural and creative organizations. She is thrilled to work with Context, embarking on this new adventure that will enable her to share her knowledge and passion for art, life, and culture in the marvelous city of Buenos Aires.
Laura is an Argentinian-born photographer and art historian. In 2010, she moved to France to study contemporary art and photography at Université Paris 8 and work at the Carnavalet Museum. Back in Argentina, she currently conducts research for a project about the history of nineteenth- and twentieth-century photography in South America. Additionally, Laura has worked for the educational department of several museums, including the Colección de arte Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat, Espacio Fundación Telefónica, Museo Eduardo Sívori, and the Museum of Latin-American Art of Buenos Aires. In 2014 she was selected to participate in the Critics and Curator’s Program for contemporary art at the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella.
Salomé was born in Mendoza, Argentina, and moved to Buenos Aires at the age of eighteen to become a professional actress and English translator. She later studied and worked in California, Madrid, and London, where she also taught Spanish, but ultimately moved back to Buenos Aires to develop her acting career in theater, TV, and film. Besides languages and acting, she also has a passion for Argentine social culture, such as the art of dining and Tango. Salome loves helping visitors learn about her adopted city's culture and its diversity, in addition to showing them an insider's view of its cafés, restaurants, theaters, and Tango bars.
