Located in the heart of Buenos Aires city, the Borges Cultural Center is an important cultural enterprise boosted by the Fundación para las Artes, a non-profit civil entity aimed at public well being. It was inaugurated in October, 1995, using over 10,000 m2 inside Galerías Pacífico, whose building is tied to arts since its very beginning. In 1896 it had already sheltered the first seat of the National Fine Arts Museum and by the mid 40s the stunning murals had been painted and them constitute an allegory. In this same place it also operated the Asociación Estímulo de Bellas Artes, the Ateneo, the Centro Islas Malvinas and the artist Ángel Della Valle had here his atelier.
In a contemporary arena, the Centro Cultural was inaugurated by King Juan Carlos I of Spain, accompanied by all the cultural environment of the city. It opened its doors with a complete display of Jorge de la Vega, the Arte de Argentina 1920-1994 exhibit organized by the Modern Art Museam of the Oxford University, a space linked with Jorge Luis Borges, the notorious Corona de los Andes and an exhibition of Spanish paintings of the 19th and 20th century. The conceptual project was undertaken in accordance with the commitment of Galerías Pacífico to assign an important part of its total area to cultural activities. A commitment that has already have over 15 years of history.
