Malba - Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (Latin American Art Museum) is one of the newest museums in Buenos Aires. It opened its doors in September 2001. Malba is a non-profit institution featuring the private art collection of Argentine entrepreneur Eduardo Costantini. Since 1990, his collection was open for the consideration of local and international specialists, and lent for Latin American art exhibitions around Latin America and Europe.

In 1998 the construction of a new building to hold the collection began, after the selection of a project by Argentine architects Gastón Atelman, Martín Fourcade and Alfredo Tapia from an international call by the International Union of Architects.

The Costantini Collection consists of a selection of more than two hundred works, including drawings, paintings, sculptures and objects by 78 artists from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela. Some of the featured artists are: Frida Kahlo, Wifredo Lam, Roberto Matta, Diego Rivera, Joaquín Torres-García, Antonio Berni, Emiliano Di Cavalcanti, Jorge de la Vega, Tarsila do Amaral, Pedro Figari, Lygia Clark, Helio Oiticica, Liliana Porter, Guillermo Kuitca and José Bedia Valdés, among others.

Besides the permanent collection, the museum features temporary exhibitions throughout the year, a movie theater with a daily program, a film library, an educational program with workshops and conferences for adults and children, and guided visits to the permanent and temporary exhibitions.
