The Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires - founded on April 11, 1956, on the initiative of the critic Rafael Squirru - affirms itself as the home of Argentine artists, and seeks to create an unforgettable experience for the visiting public.
The Moderno was conceived as an avant-garde space not only for the visual arts, but also for other expressions such as photography and design. It has a collection of modern and contemporary Argentine art of over 7,000 works.
Its exhibitions and educational activities seek to establish dialogues between the past and the present, established and experimental, providing a dynamic program that incorporates exhibitions of the Collection with works of great Argentine artists among which are Alberto Greco, León Ferrari, Luis Felipe Noé, Emilio Renart and Liliana Maresca.
It also presents temporary exhibitions with the aim of giving visibility to the best of national and international art in Buenos Aires. In recent years there have been exhibitions of Marta Minujín, Ana Gallardo, Edgardo Antonio Vigo, Sebastián Gordín, Tomás Saraceno and Jorge Macchi, among many others.
The Moderno is located on Avenida San Juan 350 in the historic district of San Telmo, in the building that belonged to the former tabacalera Nobleza Piccardo and was renovated in 2010. In 2018, it will inaugurate the entire building, which will include new exhibition galleries; a café, an expanded store, the Museum Library - now located on Alsina 963 - and multiple spaces to offer our visitors a unique and enriching experience.
