What I’ve Got: Museo de Arte Moderno de Cartagena de Indias

by

Cartagena’s Museo de Arte Moderno de Cartagena is one of the most intriguing and beautiful spaces I’ve ever seen. This museum, which houses some incredible Colombian modern art, is located inside a 17th-century house, and its modern use as an art museum is incredibly fascinating from a design perspective.

The repurposed building, as seen above, is an an amazing design decision on the part of the curators. Just the space itself feels almost like a sort of museum in itself, with its exposed walls and brick. Placing white plastered walls over exposed brick is an amazing curatorial choice as well, representing a great juxtaposition between gritty brick and clean, minimal white. From a design perspective, this museum perfects old meets new.
