Another rainy weekend in Buenos Aires made for memorable art museum adventures!
Lucky me, I met the most amazing mujer, mi novia nueva Fernanda, who is studying to be an art curator. She showed me 4 museums in 2 days: two in San Telmo, and two in Recoleta. (Both are awesome artsy areas of BA)
First up, MAMBA!
Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA)
When you walk into MAMBA, your first view is a winding staircase. Unique, powerful & playful. I realized later it was built on roller coaster tracks!
MAMBA is probably my favorite museum of all 4 we went to. I think because of the great bathroom icons...
Or, maybe it was the cool staircases...
No, I think the real reason is because it is home to the most impressive installation I saw all weekend: La Menesenda, by Segun Marta Minujin. This walking tour of 11 rooms had twists, turns and was full of surprises! Simply magical.
And of course, the Paradox at the Center exhibit was outstanding!
Overall, I highly recommend MAMBA, (which has nothing to do with Kobe Bryant or his recent retirement) and if you go, you MUST see La Menesenda!
Stay tuned for Buenos Aires Museum Review #2...
