Recoleta Cultural Center

The Recoleta Cultural Center (Centro Cultural Recoleta) is an exhibition and cultural events center located in the Recoleta district of Buenos Aires. Originally the building was constructed as a monastery by the Franciscan Friars of Recoleta, which they used until the 19th century. It’s function then changed numerous times. First as a drawing school founded by General Manuel Belgrano, then as a shelter for the poor. The complex then went through a number of changes brought about by first Mayor of Buenos Aires. Today the center is a maze of different rooms which are used to display a diverse selection of art, and at any one time you can see both national and international exhibits featuring paintings, sculptures, or photography. The styles of art can range significantly, though in general it is some form of contemporary art.
