Museo de Artes Plásticas Eduardo Sívori

Museum in Palermo

Named for an Italo-Argentine painter who studied in Europe, this modern museum of Argentine art has open spaces allowing frequent and diverse exhibitions. Sívori’s Parisian works reflect European themes, but later works returned to Argentine motifs, mainly associated with rural life in the Pampas. Most works on display are by other Argentine artists, such as Benito Quinquela Martín, Antonio Berni and Fernando Fader.

The texts accompanying the paintings are in Spanish, but guided tours in English are offered on Saturdays at 4pm. There’s also a sculpture garden and slick cafe on the premises, and occasional theater, concerts, courses and workshops are offered.
