Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires

4.5
#1 of 467 in Museums in Argentina
Admire a small but well-curated collection of modern art at Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires. The museum's collection contains paintings, sculptures, and more; highlights include works by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Fernando Botero, Emilio Pettoruti, and many other important Latin American artists. The museum also contains space for temporary displays, while its cultural center hosts constantly updated exhibits and events on art, film, and music. Be sure to admire the angular architecture of the museum itself: the design was chosen through an open competition, with three young Argentine architects taking the first prize.

  • The exhibition on Mexican avant-garde is very good. Great works of Latin American art, artists such as Orozco, Siqueiros, Kahlo, Rivera, among others. With regard to staff, are glued to the phone, without offering much support to museum-goers. Also stress that the entry is not cheap.

  • It is always a pleasure to see a sample in this museum. In this case it was the Latin American art and Mexican art. It is a pleasure to be able to see live and live pictures of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. What I like most is that not tired and can go smoothly. What I would be missing is more explanation or an audio guide. I was eager

  • Really nice Museum. Tickets are around 8usd for general public. The experience you have really depends of the exhibition at the moment.
  • Great place to stare at beautiful Latin American paintings. The building per session is gorgeous. The library is ok and the little restaurant is good although a bit expensive for the service provided
  • One of the best art museums in Latin America Verboamérica Malba collection In the framework of the celebration of the 15th anniversary of MALBA’s founding, the museum presents Verboamérica, a new exhibition of its permanent collection, curated by historian and researcher Andrea Giunta and by the museum’s artistic director, Agustín Pérez Rubio. The exhibition—the fruit of a wider research project that has been underway for over two years—proposes a living history of Latin America in actions and experiences, a postcolonial history that does not understand Latin American art in the terms proposed by European art, but rather on the basis of the words that the artists themselves used in devising their aesthetic agendas. “Verboamérica is performative and temporal; it evidences the crisis of a single and linear notion of historical time that globalization has witnessed,” explains Pérez Rubio in the exhibition catalogue; a cornerstone of the publication is Joaquín Torres-García’s famous map América invertida [Inverted America], a work that, as early as 1936, posited a modification in the geographic and spatial, but also temporal, pre-eminence of the Americas. The exhibition breaks with a classical chronological overview. It includes one hundred and seventy pieces divided into eight thematic clusters with works from different historical periods and in an array of formats (painting, drawing, photography, video, book, historical document, and installation). The clusters are: In the Beginning; Maps, Geopolitics, and Power; City, Modernity, and Abstraction; Lettered City, Violent City, Imagined City; Work, Crowd, and Resistance; The Country and The Outskirts; Bodies, Affects, and Emancipation; and Indigenous America, Black America.
  • Great collection. But the staff is not that friendly to non-spanish speakers. Kinda arrogant.
  • Went to visit it during "La Noche de los Museos", it's really interesting and the works of art are beautifully exposed. When I went it was really crowded and the line was absurd, but on a regular day it must be really great. I took the time to visit it that night since all the museums are free, and the MALBA is the most expensive one in the city.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
