Garvin Sierra

In the Polyglot Hall, a series of photographs that are part of the Autor-Circense Project were exhibited together with a video projected in the Central Hall that reflects the double identity of the members of the circus, in their role as characters and outside of it.

We thank all the members of the circus world who participated in the project and who came to ‘ace the night of the inauguration to accompany Garvin Sierra while performing various performances as part of the closing activities.


Author-portrait Circus explores the life behind the scenes of the members of the circus. The autobiographical content of the body of work was displayed through images of acrobats, contortionists, escapists, tightrope walkers, bullet men, magicians, jugglers, mentalists, puppeteers, fire eaters and trapeze artists, among other characters.

The experience of the circus, regularly associated with playfulness, acquires a new meaning when we penetrate the first impression we have of these characters and glimpse the reality behind their acts, costumes, masks … We discover how ephemeral happiness and meaning can be permanent death through the risky practices in which these characters are involved.

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
