The Buenos Aires Museum of Contemporary Art is located in San Telmoand opened in 2012. With a focus on trends in contemporary art that relate to geometry and abstraction, the collection was begun by Aldo Rubino in the late 80s. The works collected by Rubino have gone on to have a significant influence on the museum’s direction, and many of the exhibitions the museum hosts today are in line with the abstract geometric paintings that defined the original collection.
