As Contemporary As it Gets, León
This is a museum whose mission is to open its doors to the contradictions arising in the art world. Talk about generosity. Multi-colored glass panels decorating the exterior bring color to the avant-garde architecture of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MUSAC). In 2007, Emilio Tuñón and Luis Moreno were awarded the Mies van der Rohe award for contemporary architecture for its construction. Its interconnected exhibition rooms create a sense of irregularity for housing different types and sizes of work and varying vantage points for exhibitions. There’s an emphasis on dialogue between the area and the works of art themselves. To preserve its essence as a museum of the current moment, the MUSAC is always involved in new, groundbreaking projects and ever supportive of various interdisciplinary approaches to art.
