It may sound like the name of a snack, but Malba is the acronym for the city's museum of Latin American art (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires), which opened in the Palermo neighborhood in 2001. The building, an ultramodern stone cube, was designed by home-grown architects who made great use of light. The museum's permanent collection consists of more than 200 pieces that provide a superb introduction to the region’s 20th-century art currents, including such masters as Mexican greats Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, Cuba's Wifredo Lam and Colombia's Fernando Botero. Temporary exhibitions showcase works by Argentine painters and other Latin American artists.
