Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA)
Malba – Fundación Costantini (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires) opened its doors on September 21, 2001. It is a not-for-profit institution featuring the Costantini Collection, and also a dynamic cultural center, that constantly updates art and film exhibitions and develops cultural activities.
The Costantini Collection consists of a selection of more than five hundred works, including drawings, paintings, sculptures and objects by artists from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela. The body of works allows us to appreciate both the coincidences and the differences among the great Latin American artists, and to allow for a new reading of Latin American art history.
The mission of Malba is to collect, preserve, research and promote Latin American art from the onset of the 20th century to the present. This also involves educating the public to foster their knowledge in Latin American artists, in the diversity of cultural and artistic holdings in this region, sharing such responsibility both with the national and the international community.
The Museum’s objectives are to reinsert Latin American art in the world setting, to address cultural and educational needs of the public, to exhibit a broad Latin American art collection and to generate artistic exchange with other cultural institutions. These objectives are achieved by the promotion of the most important national and international artists, by the promotion of the knowledge in Latin American art, by the creation of an overall program in educational services, and by the promotion of professional curatorial practice.
