On the Argentine Art Scene

Text by Eric Jansen

The mission of Malba is to collect, conserve, study and create awareness of Latin American art from the early 20th Century to the present. Our principal objectives are to educate the public and to awake their interest in Latin American creators; to contribute to the understanding of Latin America’s cultural production, furthering recognition of the region’s cultural and artistic diversity; to share responsibility with the national and international community in these efforts by promoting artistic exchange between national, regional and international institutions and supporting innovative programs that focus on the visual arts and Latin American culture.

"Art is part of my life and it comes before my business activities. My inclination for the arts started when I was between 22 and 24. In my life, I see everything through that “eye”. Even if nowadays I’m a real estate developer and my business activities have an economic purpose, every project my company undertakes is decided from an aesthetic stance. That is to say, we do projects with which we feel identified, and which are chosen according to their creative potential. Regrettably, businessmen have a negative image because they undertake projects to maximize their benefits. Yes, making money is an objective, but many times you get there from a vocation, and I think that’s what happens to me. As the years went by, I became more and more engaged with my collection project and then with the institutional project of MALBA. And, at the same time, I focused more and more on developing projects characterized by architectural design, the curatorial aspect of the artistic project, interior design, garden and landscape design. I couldn’t conceive it any other way."
