The MALBA is the city's leading modern art museum and one of its star cultural assets. Housed in a striking modern building, it harbors, in addition to its airy galleries of art, a chic café, a neat shop (selling a variety of emerging Argentinian designs, as well as postcards and art books) and a cinema screening cutting-edge international art house fare. The permanent Constantini Collection is well worth a look for Latin American contemporary art, but be sure to check out the temporary exhibitions, which could feature anything from an Argentinian design retrospective to an edgy photography show. In case you were wondering, the acronym MALBA stands for Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires).
