BOGOTA | Museo de Arte Moderno de Bogotá (MAMBO) is Bogota’s main modern art musuem. It was founded in 1963 by Argentine art critic Marta Traba, and has been at its current location since 1985. The building, designed by architect Rogelio Salmona and located in Bogota’s cultural district, features 5,000m² of space distributed across four floors. MAMBO aims to generate knowledge around art, contributing to enhance the cultural and artistic environment of Colombia.

The museum’s permanent collection is impressive, and features over 4,300 artworks dating from the end of the 19th century to today by significant Colombian and international artists. Just a few of the artists whose works form part of the permanent collection are Pablo Picasso, Francisco Goya, Auguste Rodin, Joan Miró, Salvador Dali, Andrés de Santa María, Ricardo Acevedo Bernal, Fernando Botero, and Alejandro Obregón.

The museum also holds one of the most extensive photographic collections in Colombia with around 1 million pieces, and graphic and industrial design. These are currently shown in a series of rotating exhibitions however a selection is permanently on display. As well as highlighting parts of the collection not normally on display, MAMBO’s exhibitions also feature live and interactive works, which touch upon a wide range of topics and issues.

It’s a museum that’s well worth visiting for anyone with even just a passing interest in modern art.

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.
