The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (MNBA) is hosting a new exhibition featuring the works of renowned Argentine illustrator and comic artist Oscar “Oski” Conti.

In terms of form, Conti’s work was highly influenced by Rumanian illustrator Saul Steinberg. Thematically, it includes historical references, as well as personal experiences and depictions of his travels.

The exhibit, which will take place until the 25th of November, is showcasing over 75 of the artist’s pieces as well as photographs and essays written by Umberto Eco, Juan Sasturnain and other renowned intellectuals. There will also be a screening of two films and a power point display with unpublished material.
