Discover a new way you can take part in the museum and make an impact through the Museo Moderno Patron of the Arts programme. Our patrons gain access to a diverse cultural programme and exclusive benefits, such as early access to institutional guidelines and museum programming, an up-close experience of the collection, first access to inaugurated exhibitions, behind-the-scenes exposure to the secrets of the installation process, visits to private collections, and the opportunity to discover the museum’s reserves. The programme brings together art collectors and philanthropists who are jointly building an exclusive, enthusiastic community of people committed to the management of the museum. There are four categories of the programme: Outstanding Patrons, Important Patrons, Patrons, Sponsors. We would like to invite you to be part of the Museo Moderno Patron family.
Part of the mission of the Museo Moderno is to conserve its collections, and it is currently in the process of refurbishing the reserves. The project seeks to acquire a scissor lift for the reserves, to manufacture boxes for the storage of highly fragile pieces, and to create workstations to optimise the cataloguing and records process. We invite you to contribute to the conservation of our collection.
The International Circle of Patrons is comprised of Argentinian members who live abroad as well as international patrons. The programme brings together art collectors, philanthropists and education and culture enthusiasts who are interested in supporting the arts of Argentina and helping to raise the international profile of the Museo Moderno. Based in New York City, the programme organises events that are specifically designed to offer experiences of modern and contemporary art through visits to galleries, art fairs, private collections and workshops of different Argentinian artists. There are four categories of the programme: Outstanding Patrons, Important Patrons, Patrons, Sponsors. We invite you to become a member of the International Circle of Patrons of the Museo Moderno.
The Exhibitions Programme primarily supports the exhibition of both modern and contemporary Argentinian artists and aims to encourage experimentation and the development of new works and ambitious projects by artists that live in our country. The program also includes foreign artists who are invited to interact with the thriving Argentinian art scene of today. Your support will allow the museum to establish the best conditions for the sustained development of our Exhibitions Programme. We would like to invite you to support the dynamic Exhibitions Programme of the Museo Moderno, which organises more than ten exhibitions annually.
The Educational Programme comprises an immense range of work that is carried out in the following areas: Schools and Educational Institutes, Families, Communities, Public Programmes and Accessibility. Your support will allow us to earmark more and better resources so these programmes can continue to reach all of the museum’s audiences, both within the institution and beyond its walls, in the city and throughout the country. We would like to invite you to help us build a museum in which all of society can take part, to create a living museum that is inclusive and committed to education and accessibility.
With the ambition to surpass ourselves every day and achieve excellence, the Museo Moderno is constantly developing new projects to respond to society’s issues and the needs of the artistic community. #MuseoModernoEnCasa, which has already supported more than 400 Argentinian artists, is just one example of the different Special Projects developed by the museum in 2020 and 2021. We also opened the new location of the Moderno Library, inaugurated in September 2021, which will allow both the general public and specialists to access more than 7000 publications. We would like to invite you to be part of our annual special projects.
The works of art and historical archive of the Museo Moderno collection provide an account of the different artistic expressions that have emerged since 1940 through to today. It is one of the most important public collections of modern and contemporary art from Argentina, and its vibrancy is maintained through exhibitions, ongoing investigations, the dissemination of the collection through educational programmes, and the continuous development of conservation and restoration projects. Today, the Museo Moderno collection, which is part of our public cultural heritage, constitutes the strongest and most permanent link between the institution, artists and their public. We invite you to contribute to the conservation of our collection.
