Malba’s Acquisitions Committee is a group of donors committed to the acquisition of Latin American Art. This group takes part in the selection process, together with the Curatorial Department. The members of the Committee help to strengthen the relationship between the museum and its community. Thanks to this group, each year Malba adds to its collection works of important Latin American artists.
The first purchase of the Committee was made in 2012: a mural by argentinian artist Antonio Berni, the only buono fresco with an indigenist theme that is preserved of this great Argentine master. After an important work of extraction, relocation and restoration, the mural has been permanently exhibited in Malba since October 2013. This was an important moment to value and promote our national heritage.
Young Members of the Acquisitions Committee
In order to expand the heritage fund, the quantity and quality of works offered to the public, Malba also invites donors between the ages of 18 and 35 to be part of the Acquisitions Committee. The Young Members of the Acquisitions Committee explore new challenges, due to the new topics and discussions that arise in the art world. In this way, Malba continues to be a museum of reference, with a dynamic and up-to-date acquisitions policy.
Acquisitions of September 2021
By means of the museum's twentieth anniversary, the members of the Committee, companies and collaborators were invited to participate in the acquisition of an outstanding and unique work by an Argentine artist for the Collection, which was the central reason for the celebration. The results of the votes by the members of the Acquisitions Committee was the work Cabalgata (1966) by Juan Carlos Distéfano.
