The Americas Society is pleased to announce a special series of concerts focusing on two avant-garde music movements that sprung in Buenos Aires: Grupo Renovación and La Agrupación Nueva Música.

Their founder, Juan Carlos Paz, was a very influential musician and composer, both in Argentina and around the world. La Agrupación Nueva Música’s original electronic music laboratory survives until today, and the impact of the composers of these movements, and three generations of their students, is still felt today in leading electronic and avant-garde centers like GEMS in Canada and IRCAM in Paris.

These concerts occur simultaneously with the Society’s Gallery exhibit of Abstract Art from the Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires to Montevideo 1933-53 and events of the Literature Department.

The Americas Society is a national not-for-profit institution dedicated to informing people in the United States about the societies and cultures of its Western Hemisphere neighbors.
