  • Discover Buenos Aires through its art; whether a public sculpture by an unknown virtuoso or a painting by a well-known big-wig in a private collection, art gives you a glimpse into the soul of a place, and those that call it home. Go high-brow roaming around the traditional collection at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, low-brow at San Telmo's internationally-renowned trash-art haven Appetite and everything in-between at the rest of the art museums and galleries in Buenos Aires. All of BA's art roads lead to MALBA, the home of the personal collection of Eduardo Costantini. The building itself is an architectural marvel, with three floors devoted to rotating exhibitions of both traveling works and a circulation of the gems owned by Costantini, which include works by Latin art stars such as Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Antonio Berni, and Argentinian oddity Xul Solar. The museum also houses an art house movie theater and a fabulous French restaurant. For less mainstream, high-production art exhibitions, check out galleries such as the tiny-but-mighty Mar Dulce in Palermo, and BA's first name in contemporary art, Ruth Benzacar.
