Where are you from?
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is my first visit to L.A. and I'm very pleased to be here.

Why did you come to LACMA today?
I had heard about the museum and the richness of the collections and I wanted to see them.

Have you been inspired by art?
I write, and on many occasions my source of inspiration is a piece of art. In fact, I am here in this building to look at the Rothko painting that you have. So yes. Definitely, yes.

Why did you come to the museum today?
Piaget: We are here to see modern art, I came down from San Francisco, I had a show and I'm leaving tomorrow.

If you were a piece of artwork, which one would you be?
Piaget: I like Calder sculptures. They're free, they're playful...

Do you have plans to travel?
If I can get a job or sell some of my art, I will go to Spain...It's beautiful, relaxing, and I've always gone there as a child...hopefully I will travel around and go to Bilbao.
