A comic exhibition and a tribute to our greatest tango interpreters, that’s “Troilo by Sabat”. A famous local artist Hermenegildo Sabat draws the life of one of the most recognized tango large accordion player, Anibal Troilo. The exhibition takes place in the recently opened Museum Of Humor (Puerto Madero, Costanera Sur) until September 30. A great chance to see the mixture of two Porteño passions: tango and comics.
Anibal Troilo is depicted as a creator, as a musician and as a symbol of friendship. The tribute includes works where he is portrayed along some of its greatest friend in life (and in tango) as: Astor Piazzolla, Edmundo Rivero, Francisco Fiorentino and Homero Manzi. All of them are poets, composers, singers and tango musicians, so you can virtually learn the history of tango through these comics.
Hermenegildo Sabat is a plastic artist, photographer, musician and poet born in Uruguay. Born in 1933, he moved to Buenos Aires in 1966 and started working for the main newspapers of Argentina. His comics are an important reference of main newspapers back covers.
Anibal Troilo was one of the greatest contemporary tango composers and one of the best large accordion executioners. Also known by the nickname “Pichuco”, he is a true Porteño symbol.
You can visit the exhibition Mondays to Fridays from 11AM to 6PM and Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays from 10AM to 8PM. The tickets cost 10 Argentine pesos (some like 2.5 American dollars). You can find more information on the Museum of Humor website (available only in Spanish).
