Color, innovative movement and artistic concepts of all types dominated the 22nd Buenos Aires Contemporary Art Fair.

The fair, better known as arteBA, featured numerous foreign art galleries this year.

Previous editions of arteBA were known for montages and contemporary sculptures, but paintings took center stage at this year's fair.

Latin American, U.S. and European galleries gave visitors an opportunity to view a variety of paintings, Facundo Gomez Minujin, who runs his own foundation dedicated to the arts, told Efe.

"People came from many countries, from all across Latin America and Europe, especially Germany, and we are expecting nearly 100,000 people to visit us," Gomez Minujin said.

The fair is showcasing the drawings of Peruvian artist Natalia Revilla and the photographs of Argentina's Manuel Archain.

Argentine artists Xul Solar, Yoyo Noe, Emilio Pettoruti, Alicia Penalba, Carmelo Arden Quin, Clorindo Testa and Julio Le Parc are also exhibiting their work at arteBA.

The fair is giving artists from the 1990s and 2000s generations an opportunity to exhibit their work, organizers said. EFE
