For those with a more contemporary and minimalist taste for art and design, MALBA is a must see on your next visit to Buenos Aires. MALBA - which stands for, Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires), is as stunning on the inside as it is on the outside. The mix of glass and stone exterior carry the theme throughout the exhibit halls and spaces inside.
The avant garde art ranges from 19th to 20th century works and also features both temporary exhibits and private collections with iconic pieces by artists such as Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Antonio Berni. The museum is not limited to the art within, but also throughout its surroundings. This includes the trendy cafe - Restaurante Ninina - within the glass walls (pictured above) and a bookstore worth a visit as well.
The MALBA was created to serve as an inclusive cultural space encouraging open participation by all who enter. Beyond the contemporary art that is housed within, the museum offers a cinema program that includes an extensive film collection and regular viewings. There is also a Literature area where the museum hosts authors for literary chats, book seminars and presentations.
