MALBA ~ Museo de Arte Latinoamerica de Buenos Aires

The Museo de Arte Latinoamerica de Buenos Aires is one of many museums and galleries in the capital. MALBA is wonderul in its airy simplicity, and in its great collection, and not to be missed.

The building houses the private art collection of collector Eduardo Costantini and is considered one of the most impressive collections of Latin American art anywhere with a permanent collection featuring Antonio Berni, Frida Kahlo, Antonio Sigui, Diego Rivera and others.

Benches are functional, and modern works of art.

Some of the works confront social issues and explore national identity, 
as above in Manifestacion by Antonio Berni. 
The work is from 1934. The artist is from Rosario, Argentina.

Time is well spent at MALBA. Delightful in every way, even in the parting shots.
