The Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires, public institution dependant of the Ministerio de Cultura del Gobierno de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, was created in april of 1956 by initiative of Rafael Squirru, its first director. From the beginning, the Moderno was a vanguard-led museum, the true house of argentine artists and a space dedicated to promote the latest productions from all artistic disciplines.
Their programs have multiple objectives. Among them, to ensure the public access to its cultural heritage - the most important collection of modern and contemporary argentine art in the country, with 7000 artworks and design pieces-; the dissemination of argentine art and the emphasis on education through art as a motor for imagination, providing tools to promote creativity and innovation in our society.
MISSION: We work alongside each other bringing art to all kinds of public. The sustained support of each one of our members and donors gives us the possibility to achieve every goal we set. We unfold a selection of actions concerning fundraising and dissemination, providing the museum with the necessary resources for the pursuit of their objectives.
We reinforce our mission and continue working together to create an accessibility-focused public museum, with a unique offer.
