The Argentine Embassy in the United States brings together artists and intellectuals to pay tribute to a great 20th century author: Jorge Luis Borges.

This event will let us discover key aspects of his life, thanks to the work of artists who will demonstrate the influence his work has had throughout time and space. Maria Kodama will participate, and we will enjoy the opening of treasured works generously held by the United States Library of Congress.
