Modern Art Museum in Buenos Aires Reopens

Architects Carlos Sallaberry and Matias Ragonese refurbished and reopened the Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art (MAMBA, for its initials in Spanish). The project was completed in July of this year, and the official reopening was on July 12. On this day, MAMBA also introduced an exhibition called History of Two Worlds: Latin American experimental art in dialogue with the MMK collection, 1994-1989.

The new MAMBA, a public institution under the Ministry of Culture of the Government of the City of Buenos Aires, was built on a previous refurbishment by Emilio Ambasz between 2005 and 2010. It was originally created in April 1956. The museum is both enlarged and renovated to increase the amount of space dedicated to exhibitions, and the architects integrated the whole structure of the museum, joining the individual buildings together.

The museum’s History of the Two Worlds exhibition features artists from across the world, from both private and public collections, exploring themes like pop culture and alchemy. It begins by looking at what’s called the great upheaval that revolutionized Latin American art circles in the 40's. The exhibition’s mission is to spark debate on how artists reacted to their socio-political situations; it’s an exploration of art’s ability to change over time.
