  • This Argentine artist, who changed his name to Xul Xolar, shows concepts and experiences of the early twentieth century. The museum located in the same house where he lived, is splendidly arranged in an architectural concrete remodel in sight. His colorful paintings show a world of occultism that I frequent in his ten years in Europe and then in Argentina. My favorite work is "You and I" perhaps the simplest in terms of content, but of great aesthetic success.

  • The house is already an architectural spectacle, the works of this genius dispense comments... The place is ultra Nice, quality music in the boxes, has even a small space kids with material for children draw... Look, a Marvel!

  • This beautiful museum is a bit off the usual tourist trails but it's really worth a visit. We went there on a Saturday afternoon in autumn and we have to say we really liked it. Very interesting structure architecturally and with many works inside. The latter are really interesting even if they are to be understood. There are also events and concerts inside.

It was created in 1986 by Micaela (Lita) Cadenas, his wife, and Natalio J. Povarché, marchand of Xul Solar, who decided to found it respecting the original plans of the creator, as he had conceived the Pan Klub at the end of the years 1930. It was inaugurated on April 13, 1993 with the works selected by the same Xul Solar and which are also those that make up the permanent exhibition of the Museum, together with objects, sculptures and documents that belong to his personal archive. This same space functions as a cultural center where cultural events and temporary exhibitions dedicated to the artist take place. Likewise, the Foundation conserves the personal home of the artist who keeps his library of approximately 3,500 volumes.
