About the Museum
MAM is a non-profit organization founded in 1948. The collection has about five thousand works by the most representative artists of Modern and Contemporary Brazilian art. Both the collection and the exhibitions foster experimentation, acknowledging the diversity of interests in today’s societies. MAM is located in the Ibirapuera Park, the largest green area in São Paulo. Its building was adapted by Lina Bo Bardi and offers, beyond two exhibitions rooms, a workshop, a library, an auditorium, a restaurant and a store. The spaces of the Museum are visually integrated with the Jardim de Esculturas [Sculpture Garden] designed by Roberto Burle Marx in order to exhibit artworks belonging to the collection.
