Fodor's Expert Review Fundação Iberê Camargo

Porto Alegre Museum/Gallery
Set up in 1995 to promote the work of the 20th-century gaúcho painter Iberê Camargo, this foundation is the jewel in the city’s cultural crown. The award-winning building was designed by Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, and is in itself worth the schlep downriver just to wander through the striking, four-story white atrium, and round the curving walkways that snake inside and out of the curvaceous building. Known for his poetic expressionism, Iberê Camargo’s paintings are on display, alongside a changing roster of modern artists.
