SANTIAGO | Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (“MAC”) (Museum of Contemporary Art) is run by the University of Chile’s Faculty of Arts and has, since it was founded in 1947, promoted modern and contemporary art.

The museum’s primary home since 1974 has been the Palacio de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Palace) in Parque Forestal. It shares this building with Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Museum of Fine Arts). The museum also has a second location, in Qunita Normal, which opened in 2005.

The museum features over 2,600 pieces, dating from the mid 19th century to today. The majority of art is by Chilean artists, however the museum also has a number of pieces from international artists. The museum has two missions. The first is to use art as a medium of expression and social inclusion, promoting debate and reflection on all the fields of human knowledge. The second is to be a high quality, specialist museum of modern and contemporary art, and it does this through traditional displays of artworks, and a series of modern, creative, interactive exhibitions across a diverse range of media.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. 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.
