In the very heart of San Telmo neighborhood, a new contemporary art museum opened: it’s the MACBA (Museum of Contemporary Art of Buenos Aires). It is located right next to the Modern Art Museum (MAMBA) in San Juan Avenue (between Balcarce and Defensa streets). It has an amazing glass façade and four exhibition rooms adding 15 thousand square meters for local art.
Among the works you can see in MACBA is the Aldo Rubino’s private collection (one of the largest in our city). This collection is characterized by international geometrical abstraction and joins the first exhibition of the museum: “Intercambio Global” (Global Exchange). It is dedicated to geometrical abstraction from the 50’s and it’s curated by Joe Houston, an American specialist.
You will enjoy the works of artists such as: Víctor Vasarely, Juan Melé, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Guillermo Kuitca, Raúl Lozza, Heinz Mack, Marta Minujín, Kenneth Noland, Sarah Morris, Leon Polk Smith and Luis Tomasello, among others.
You can find more information on the MACBA website (available both in Spanish and English).
