El Espartano

Re-opening of the AAMNBA Auditorium


El Espartano was commissioned to produce the new carpet for the AAMNBA auditorium. The design by Leandro Domínguez was chosen in the framework of “El Museo está de Moda” [The Museum is in Fashion], an initiative in which over 3,500 individuals participated by casting their vote.

On Wednesday, April 23, the Asociación Amigos del Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (AAMNBA) opened its new auditorium pursuant to reforms that took place as part of the “El Museo está de moda” project. This was a joint initiative of the AAMNBA and El Espartano, the leading Argentine company in the design and sale of rugs, carpets, and synthetic grass.


The comprehensive reform of the AAMNBA auditorium included acoustic and technical improvements as well as changes to the architectural structure. The aim of the initiative was to create a unique space in which to hold educational and cultural activities.

The carpet donated by El Espartano was designed by Leandro Dominguez. His proposal was chosen from a group of designs by acclaimed designers Min Agostini, Mariana Cortés, Martín Churba, Mariana Dappiano, and Laura Valenzuela.

Over the course of one month, more than 3,500 individuals voted for their favorite design on the initiative’s website (www.elmuseoestademoda.com). The designs that were not selected will form part of a collection of Argentine textile and carpet designs and other projects to be exhibited and available for purchase at the MNBA shop.

El Espartano supports a range of cultural initiatives in the fields of art and education. We decided to join efforts with the AAMNBA to decorate to a space fundamental to the city of Buenos Aires.
