Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires

Expand your knowledge of modern and contemporary Latin American art through collections covering more than 100 years of creativity.

Within the galleries and halls of the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires are more than 500 pieces of Latin American art. Permanent and temporary exhibitions present paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, prints and collages from the early 20th century to the present day. They cover such movements as hyperrealism, pop, conceptual art and minimalism and are by artists from countries including Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico. See many thought-provoking pieces that address themes of race, culture, poverty, politics and sexuality.

Explore the museum’s permanent collection of Latin American art. At any time there are approximately 140 pieces on display. Examine surrealist paintings from the 1930s and 1940s. Study the self-portrait of famous Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo. Admire the vivid colors of pop art pieces from the 1960s and 1970s. 

Get acquainted with the work of Argentine painter Antonio Berni, admired for his depictions of poverty and the anxieties of Argentina’s poor. One of the museum’s showpieces is Berni’s 1934 painting Manifestación depicting a protest for bread and work. The large twisted faces are a graphic portrayal of the difficulties faced by a disgruntled population. 

Take note of the museum’s captivating contemporary design. Large windows allow plenty of natural light to bathe the building’s spacious rooms and hallways.

Spanish speakers can take advantage of the range of cultural activities offered, including lectures, workshops and film and documentary screenings. Go to the museum’s official website to see the full events program. You will also find contact details for guided tours in English.

The museum is open every day except Tuesdays. There is an admission charge for entry. Discounts are available for students, retirees and teachers; children under six years of age and disabled people get in free. There is also a reduced entry fee every Wednesday.

The Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires is in the Palermo district of Buenos Aires, about 4 miles (6.5 kilometers) north of the city center.
