About Us

Fachada del Museo con atardecer

MAMM is a space that questions traditions through a proactive attitude towards the determining issues of contemporary society. We make available to the audiences diverse ways of seeing and interpreting the world, providing meaningful experiences around art.

More than a physical space, we are a place where heritage, art production, the public and the institution come together; our exhibition program presents contemporary artistic and cultural production without thematic restrictions, in direct relation to our contexts: the city, the country, the continent.

We work to be a global and at the same time a local Museum, which promotes encounter, work, production and research among multiple ways of contemporary creation and enhances the development of subjectivities. These dimensions are mixed and nurtured to be exposed and disseminated to society through various exhibitions each year.

We invite you to know the exhibitions that you can visit in our galleries: 

The exhibition displays over one hundred works from one of the most comprehensive collections of Colombian art and represents a rare opportunity to study and exhibit this collection outside the cultural centers of the Central Bank of Colombia. Curated by the MAMM team and with the support of the Arts and Other Collections Unit of the Banco de la República, The Good Life includes some of the most important Colombian art works of the past 70 years, conveying the significance of individual and collective life choices in the country. It is an invitation to think intersectionally about how (in a wink to, among others, the artist and philosopher Denise Ferreira da Silva) our actions align with ourselves, with others, and with the planet during our fleeting time on this earth.

Here, oCo is presented as an installation that suggests that sound can surpass geographical and cultural limits to become a spiritual and transformative force. The sound narrative of this installation consists of soundscapes recorded during the visit to the Sierra, which are mixed with sounds from the electromagnetic spectrum. Four audio channels amplify this set of resonances while simultaneously establishing a dialogue with modified loudspeakers and electroacoustic artifacts made with organic materials and water, creating a constantly changing sound ecosystem that involves vibration, friction, and oxidation.

The notion of cultural and artistic heritage is conflicting as a tangible and intangible asset that is preserved and transmitted for its value from one generation to the next. This is because the concepts of art and culture are dynamic: they respond to specific times and social contexts. Moreover, terms such as tradition, history, identity and heritage, for example, linked to a heritage – in this case the Museum – determine profiles, organizations and conservation processes that limit works of art to objects that must remain static, both in their materiality and in their apparent service to cultural identity, history, commodification and tourism.
