Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires Reviews
Good temporary exhibition Jan 18, 2015
S34°37.311' W58°22.173' unclear to us was the existence of two modern art museums in Buenos Aires next to each other. Which one to enter? The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Buenos Aires was closed. Problem solved.
Housed in an old tobacco warehouse, this spacious new Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA) shows off the works of national and international contemporary artist. Most of them are temporary exhibitions, like in January 2015 The Circle Walked Casually (el círculo caminaba tranquilo). Inspired by the story "Genealogy" (1926) from the Uruguayan writer Felizberto Hernández, Victoria Noorthoorn conceived and Brazilian artist, filmmaker and exhibition designer Daniela Thomas designed this exhibition. It is a new series of exhibitions of the Deutsche Bank Collection to be organized by international guest curators. This exhibition opened the first time at the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin between November 2013 and March 2014. In Buenos Aires, it incorporates a dialogue with a selection of works from the Collection of MAMBA.
The beauty of this temporary exhibition is that a painting flows in an infinitive white space without any distraction or support by the surrounding. The impression it makes comes solely from the painting itself. Beside two paintings of Piet Mondrian from MAMBA own collection, we were impressed by the eight colourful paintings of Katharina Grosse.
