MACBA -Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Buenos Aire, Buenos Aires

(2.3/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Art enthusiasts should make a beeline for MACBA -Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Buenos Aire, which places special emphasis on interaction, provoking thought, and abstract geometric art. Opened to the public in 2012, the museum has since acted as a space for reflecting on ever-changing trends in art with a particular focus on the historical importance of geometric abstraction to Buenos Aires. The art here is not of the traditional kind, and some not invested in the contemporary art of Buenos Aires may find themselves turning away from some of the more modern pieces here, though most will come away feeling rewarded by the challenge of the works.

  • With the bombastic title of Museum of contemporary art in Buenos Aires, this private institution is a hoax! With an input face to what is, shows in its three rooms pobrisimas works, in this case, of nine artists French. The only possible comment: a huge frustration! If it is close, do not go! Make 2 more steps and enjoy of the MAMBA which is excellent!

  • Unless you're a huge fan of contemporary art. No wonder it was empty. The exhibitions were very bad.

  • My experience is the same as the Guggenheim in New York, too much structure for so little content of art. There is an exhibition of French artists, Orlian, and a documentary of a whale. The entrance leaves 40 pesos, between fifteen and twenty minutes you can visit the 4 levels. It could be more complete.
