One of the newer museums in Buenos Aires is the Latin American Art Museum, in Spanish Museo de Arte Latinoamericao Buenos Aires – hence it’s acronym MALBA.
It has an extensive collection of 19th and 20th century avant garde art.
There were a number of works from Ernesto Neto, a contemporary sculpturist.
One of the main galleries had a large collection of mid century Latin American art.
Easily the most interesting was the work called La Pileta by Leandro Erlich. This piece looked like a swimming pool, both above it as well as being ‘in’ it.
Another piece by Erlich were these boats, which appeared to be floating.
The MALBA is a very nice museum, well worth the visit in the city on a hot Saturday afternoon.
