We spent all weekend with Santiago (yesterday’s tour BA Belle Epoch Architecture). Today he came with architecture books to supplement yesterday’s tour. Today’s tour of the museum included discussion of the architecture of the MALBA. Santiago’s knowledge of the history of modern Latin American Art is extensive and he is not afraid to share his favorites pieces from the collection. Taking the conversation to the street brought us to a residential neighborhood outside the tourist zone. Santiago shared a long-term mural project which included artists from many South American countries. His knowledge of the genre and painting techniques were such a delight. As both a working street artist AND architect, this architect and curator could not have asked for a better companion. And his English is expert! We have a new friend!
Santiago could not have been nicer or more knowledgable. He is a wonderful communicator not only in his ability to speak English, but most for his ability to take big ideas and condense them into manageable morsels as only great educators can do.
I am a long time customer of Context -- and have had mostly great guides. Santiago was very good and we enjoyed our time with him.
