From the tango to the visual arts, if you are interested in discovering new artists in Argentina, its capital, Buenos Aires, is the perfect destination.
The cultural offerings in the capital, which boasts many museums, hold endless appeal. The National Museum of Fine Arts is a must-see. There, you'll find the works of Argentinian painters including Cándido López and Benito Quinquela Martín, as well as European artists such as Monet and Van Gogh. If you prefer contemporary art, you'll want to visit to the MALBA, the Latin American art museum with a bold architectural design. It offers permanent and temporary exhibitions, as well as a cinematheque and a space dedicated to literature.
For other art forms, including music and video arts, visit the Recoleta Cultural Center, a colonial building renovated and repurposed in 1979. The center is a veritable labyrinth of colors, featuring exhibition rooms where paintings and digital art are displayed side by side. For a unique perspective of Buenos Aires, don't miss the snapshots from the city's photography contests.
