LIMA | Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MAC) (Museum of Contemporary Art) is an art museum in Lima’s Barranco district that focuses on contemporary art primarily from Latin America and Europe. It’s housed in a modern building, completed in 2013, and features a permenant collection (more on this later) and a rotating collection temporary exhibits. The collection covers abstract expressionism, geometric art, constructivism, conceptual art, optical art and pieces influenced by surrealism and pop art.

One criticism that has been leveled that the museum is that the art collection is not very large and unfortunately we have to agree. When we visited we spent about 20 minutes perusing the art in two temporary exhibit rooms, and assumed that we’d then move on to the museum’s permanent collection. There was, however, no permanent collection on display which was disappointing. A bit more research shows that this has been the case since at least 2016.

Entry is only PEN10 (~USD$3) so it’s worth popping in if the temporary exhibition is of particular interest, or if you’re in the area and have some time to spare. Hopefully the permanent collection is put on display one day, but unfortunately, MAC in its current state is not a ‘must visit’ museum in Lima.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
