MALBA - Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires
Founder Eduardo Constantini's collection is at its heart – a series of over 220 19th- and 20th-century pieces spread throughout a series of chronological first floor galleries. Not only a historic portfolio of the modern art movement, the collection also portrays a strong sense of geographical identity, with a number of evocative political and cultural works on display. Highlights include works by Argentines Xul Solar and Antonio Berni, Chilean Roberto Matta, a Frida Kahlo self-portrait, Brazilian Tarsila Do Amaral’s much-celebrated Abaporu and a series of innovative Julio Le Parc art installations.
MALBA also features a range of temporary exhibitions in its top floor gallery, an art house cinema, bookstore and a lively café.
