The museum is located in one of the most elegant areas of Buenos Aires, within the so-called park district, very close to the forests of Palermo. Its modern building was built in 2001, with a marked deconstructivist style, a current of fashion architecture in the 1990s.
Within Malba, an artistic heritage is exhibited with works that range from the 20th century to the present. With prestigious artists such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Tarsila Do Amaral, Pedro Figari, Alejandro Xul Solar, Emilio Pettoruti, Antonio Berni, Joaquín Torres García, Emiliano Di Cavalcanti, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Cándido Portinari. Among paintings, sculptures, drawings, collages, photography and video, the works exhibited here review Latin American history and its different currents of artistic avant-garde, such as surrealism, pop, conceptualism and minimalism, among others.
Malba is also very active in cultural activities, where weekly workshops and talks are organized open to the community. Also in its first level there is a cinema where alternative films are screened, which is outside the commercial circuit.
