The Museum of Contemporary Art, MAC for short, was founded in 2013 and has proposed the task of mediating between artists who live now and in the world. It is not limited to the artistic scene of Peru, but integrates the entire South American continent. It is the only one of its kind in Lima.
The museum is located in Barranco, a neighborhood known for its artistic scene. The building in which the museum is located was designed according to its purpose: modern glass cubes that seem to float on an artificial water surface. This is surrounded by green areas, which are accessible to both visitors and interiors.
The architectural elements built with modern materials appear as their own works of art integrated into nature. Even for visitors who find it difficult to enter into contemporary art, the museum and its surroundings are a must.
