Oscar Bony (Argentina 1941-2002) was an avant-garde artist known for his innovative and daring work. Born in Posadas, in the northern province of Misiones, he trained at Buenos Aires's prestigious Instituto Torcuato di Tella in the 1960s. Bony moved to Milan after Argentina's military coup in 1976, returning to Argentina only after the end of the dictatorship, in 1988. His work ranged from painting to live installations to video, finally focusing primarily on photography towards the end of his life.
Bony's work was the subject of a retrospective, "Oscar Bony: el Mago," at the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, from November 2007 to February 2008.
