Walking Men worldwide™ is proud to announce the opening of Walking Men Buenos Aires! The project will be on display for one month, starting on October 9th, 2015.

The installation spans across Buenos Aires’ downtown area in multiple interventions featuring a combination of humane scale icons and street-light banners that celebrate walkability in the city.

The centerpiece of this city-wide project can be seen at Banco Ciudad building on Florida, corner of Sarmiento streets. The exhibition continues on two pedestrian streets around Buenos Aires’ Microcenter on Mitre and San Martín streets, culminating in the banners on Diagonal Norte – Roque Saenz Peña Avenue, all the way to the city’s iconic Obilisco.

This is the 7th major installation of Walking Men worldwide™, hosted by the City Government of Buenos Aires, in collaboration with the Cultural Department of the Embassy of Israel in Buenos Aires, in the spirit of the Energia Creativa Program.

Walking Men worldwide™ is a series of public art installations, a photographic collage of pedestrian traffic icons assembled from around the world, presented in humane scale. The project was conceived as a collaborative effort of international photographers, each adding a piece to the collage.

In January 2010, the project made its debut on 99 Church Street, Manhattan in Walking Men 99™, which was installed in two editions over the next four years. The installation, commissioned by the Alliance for Downtown NY, was followed by a series of projects including Walking Men PERMM (2010), a public art installation in collaboration with the PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art in Russia, Walking Men Worldwide™ – The Banner Gallery as part of the Art & About Sydney Festival (2013), and most recently in conjunction with Walk 21 Sydney, Australia (2014).

Additional public art installations under the umbrella of Walking Men Worldwide™ include Men At Work (2010), which was on display at the Bat-Yam International Biennale of Landscape Urbanism in Israel, followed by Men At Work NYC, which was unveiled around the site of World Trade Center Tower 4 (September 2011-2012).
