Good news for the beginning of 2011: The Museum of Modern Art in Buenos Aires (MAMBA) has been reopened, after being closed for five years. With a renovation that cost no less than 58 million pesos (over than 14.5 million dolars) but still need to pay more than 27 million.
In the new Mamba you can see, on the ground floor, the exhibition "Uncertain Narratives" with works by young artists from Argentina. The second proposal is on the first floor and it's "The Imaginarium of Ignacio Pirovano", curated by Cecilia Rabossi, with works from the collection housed in the museum Pirovano, with prestigious artists of the abstraction of Argentina and the international scope.
The museum was closed in 2005 to begin the remodelations and his art works were transferred to other areas, although they were in danger, and fortunately now ended their adventure. The MAMBA was born in 1956 at the initiative of art critic Rafael Squirru and since then accumulated 7000 argentine and international art works of XX and XXI centuries.
The MABA is open Monday to Friday from 12 AM to 7 PMs and on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 11 AM to 8 PM in San Juan 350, in San Telmo. The entry comes (just) 1 peso (less than 30 cents of dollar) and Tuesday, it's free.
