The mission of the Cultural Section is to promote Argentine art and culture in all of its aspects through activities that allow the dissemination of the diversity and richness of our country, encouraging, in particular, the presentation of Argentine artists residing both in Argentina and in the United States.
All year round the Embassy hosts bimonthly art exhibits open to the public, tango classes, free film series, book presentations, lectures, conferences and concerts. The Embassy also promotes Argentine art and culture in cooperation with renowned U.S. institutions, museums, non-profit cultural organizations, theaters, and local educational programs to disseminate our culture.
In addition, the Embassy actively collaborates with local film festivals, such as the AFI Latin American Film Festival, the Jewish Film Festival and the DC International Film Festival. Argentina also participates in the monthly activities organized by the Dupont Circle BID, ArtWalk Dupont, which includes a tour of the neighborhood's art galleries, live performances and interactive art.
