Moscoso Cosmos: The Visual Universe of Victor Moscoso gathers a large selection of the work of one of the most original and influential graphic designers of the 20th century. This exhibition brings together the renowned series of psychedelic rock posters that he created over eight months in 1966 and 1967, and fourteen issues of the underground magazine Zap Comix. Posters, album covers, comics, illustrations for books and magazines, animations and biographical photographs complete a journey marked by iconic pictures of the second half of the 20th century.

The pieces that make up the collection on display have been carefully selected from the foundation archives, each of them a perfect example of the themes, techniques, formats and art practices with which Seoane built his own creative universe. The main purpose of the exhibition is to educate. It is suitable for those visitors that already know and admire his work –offering them a chance to rediscover pieces like the magnificent portrait of British actor Robert Atkins, dressed as his character of Caliban from Shakespeare’s The Tempest, that Seoane painted in 1949 during his London stay–, and for those that have only known Seoane as a painter and printmaker but are unaware of his other work, like his tapestries, book design or murals.
