A museum located in Mexico City's Chapultepec park founded by Rufino Tamayo. Award winning architecture with stunning contemporary art installations.
Notes from Museo Tamayo: The core of the Museo Tamayo’s collection includes more than 300 works by 170 artists, which Rufino Tamayo assembled to form the museum. His intention was to offer the Mexican public the opportunity to experience international art of the highest quality representing the entire range of artistic movements since World War II. This original group of artworks, which can be described as belonging to late modernism, includes examples of many of the most preeminent artists of the second half of the twentieth century, such as Helen Frankenthaler, Barbara Hepworth, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Julio Le Parc, Roberto Matta, Henry Moore, Louise Nevelson, Isamu Noguchi, Marta Palau, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, and Joaquín Torres García.
Additionally, since its inauguration the Museo Tamayo has continued to present the most relevant art of our time, and examples of contemporary art in all its formats have continued to be added to the collection. This group of works includes artists such as: Tacita Dean, Yto Barrada, Francis Alÿs, Carlos Amorales, Eduardo Costa, Pierre Huyghe, Jac Leiner, Teresa Margolles, Tania Pérez Córdova, Liliana Porter, and Danh Vo.
