A Walking tour of the MALBA

Founder Eduardo Constantini's private collection, more than 220 19th- and 20th-century pieces displayed chronologically throughout the first-floor galleries, is the focal point of the museum. A portfolio of the modern art movement, the collection also portrays a strong sense of geographical identity through a number of evocative political and cultural works. Highlights include art by Argentines Xul Solar and Antonio Berni, Chilean Roberto Matta, a Frida Kahlo self-portrait, Brazilian Tarsila Do Amaral’s much-celebrated Abaporu, and innovative installations by Julio Le Parc. The top-floor gallery, meanwhile, houses temporary exhibitions and a small cinema that shows art-house movies, mostly in Spanish.
