Opened in 2001 as a sort of personal art museum of Argentine über–real estate developer Eduardo Costantini, MALBA—the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires—now plays a central role in Buenos Aires’s artistic and cultural life. Offerings include regular readings, movie screenings, and an exhibition space that combines traveling exhibits from the likes of David LaChapelle and Roy Lichtenstein with Costantini’s collection of prominent Latin American artists like Diego Rivera, Antonio Berni, and Guillermo Kuitca.
The spare, sleek building, designed by three young Argentine architects, also holds an airy, glass-walled café —open at night Thursdays through Saturdays—that’s perfect for a post-visit caipirinha or delicious dessert. A warning: the café can be loud.
