Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA) (Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires) Review

Some 7000 contemporary artworks make up the permanent collection at this block-long museum. Once the site of a tobacco company, the MAMBA retains the original exposed-brick facade and fabulous wooden doors with wrought-iron fixtures. After being closed for more than five years of renovation work, these doors reopened in late 2010, although only a few galleries arre actually up and running. Eventually, most of wall acreage will contain a rotating selection of the museum's paintings, sculptures, and new media by 20th- and 21st-century artists both local and international. Since reopening, temporary exhibitions have included engravings by local great Antonio Seguí. Lectures and film screenings will form part of the program.
