MACBA -Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Buenos Aire, Buenos Aires
(2.5/5 based on 85 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.

  • Before entering the Museum, they made us be summed up in one word what it meant contemporary art for us. I am not a person who is characterized by the power of synthesis, but there I read: rupture. And at a certain point, I understood that it has some of that. The abstract, the concrete. Everything has an explanation, though you see a rod for hanging clothes with covers bent plugs. Or you see sprout from the floor as a magma of oil. Or you see on the top floor, photos of women crime scenes. It's all so interesting, something you carry for then to continue breaking down and disarming, and there is the concept of rupture: of the Schizo /. The Museum, which is very nice. Well decorated! And you can make two visits in one, because on the side you have the Museum of modern art.
