Buenos Aires – February 2020 – Latin American Art Museum

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.
