MEXICO CITY

Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo are two of the most representative artists of the 20th Century in Mexico. These two museums are part of their legacy.

The Dolores Olmedo museum, formely the home of Rivera's patron and collector, is a beautiful place in the far South of the city. The gardens include peacocks and xoloitzcuintle hairless dogs (in sculpture form!).

Sadly, no photography is allowed inside.

Photos by me.



























A bit farther to the North, the Anahuacalli museum houses Diego Rivera's collection of pre-Columbian artifacts. After living in Europe and dabbling in cubism and actively participating in the Parisian avant-garde, Rivera came back to Mexico and developed a style that is almost the definition of 20th Century Mexican art.

Dedicated to fashion lovers!
Armani Silos
Milan - Italy


official website


Armani Silos is located in a complex of buildings that were formerly a Nestlè factory, which Giorgio Armani bought in 2006. The fashion designer, in collaboration with archistar Tadao Ando, has created a new gallery to celebrate the Armani style and its future. Visiting the museum is like a voyage through the fashion of Armani and its psychology. First of all there is the name Silos, so industrial and agricultural at the same time: "this building contained cereals, necessary to live, now it will contain clothes that also are necessary for life, so as to improve it," Armani says. "It seemed the right place 'to store' my collections. It is not like the usual museum, it is a permanent exhibit that will be renewed partially every six months".

On four floors, in an architectural style respecting the original rough cement that exalts elegance, grouped by theme there is the whole itinerary of pret-a-porter (600 outfits and 200 accessories). One passes from fluid jackets and many famous greige, from whites to stunning evening black, among festive dresses inspired by the orient and decò, very simple but also coloured, floral, spectacular: "this exhibit shows anyone who doesn't believe how I have been creative in many different, unexpected directions, that then became normal in fashion," Armani says.

The reconstruction work of the former industrial park is not finished - soon there will be other buildings and also "a space for the Armani Privé collections or perhaps Emporio, I must decide". Armani shows everything with the pride of someone who has busied himself personally with the project - in agreement with Milan city government - and its realisation. It's almost time for the triple celebration (the inauguration, the fashion show and the party), how does he feel to know his clothes still will be here a century from now? "I will be somewhere up there watching!" Armani says.

MUDEC _ Museum of Cultures
Milan - Italy


official website




Museo delle Culture (Museum of Cultures), or MUDEC, is the latest addition to the museum landscape of Milan. Opened on March 26, 2015, it is a centre dedicated to interdisciplinary research on the cultures of the world, and focuses on the relationship of these cultures with the city of Milan.


The project for the Museum of Cultures originated in the 1990s when the Municipality of Milan acquired the former industrial area of Ansaldo to give it over to the cultural activities. The disused factories, which are true monuments of industrial archaeology, have been transformed into workshops, studies and new creative spaces.


The intercultural vocation that runs through it today finds its expression in a design that is capable of meeting the call, which over the years has become more and more widespread, from a cultural public in a landscape that is in continuous transformation for museum institutions, their sustainability and their identity between scientific research, historical witness, interpretation of the present day and a vision of the future.






A visitor to the Museum of Cultures can visit great international shows proposed via diverse artistic languages, get to know the ethno-anthropological heritage of the collections of the Municipality of Milan which are made up of more than 7000 works of art, objects of use, textiles and musical instruments from every continent, take part in a schedule of events and initiatives curated by the international communities present locally.






The museum is designed by the British architect Sir David Chipperfield. His firm David Chipperfield Architects is responsible for the design of many other cutting-edge museums like the Neues Museum in Berlin, the Saint Louis Art Museum in Missouri and the Liangzhu Culture Museum in Hangzhou, China.

The very architecture of the building mirrors the many spirits that dwell in the MUDEC. The building features blocks of squared off forms clad in zinc and a crystal structure – lit around the clock – that bursts geometrically upon the area hosting it and appears very different from the adjacent rooms. The MUDEC sets itself apart by its central hall in a free and organic shape which generates an internal courtyard with a characteristic “flower” shape, a covered piazza, a meeting place between cultures and communities.

Within the building various spaces are laid out that offer the visitor and the city a multiplicity of cultural proposals and services. The ground floor is devoted to welcoming; it has a bistrot, a design store, ticket office, wardrobe, restoration workshop and storerooms set up for visits by small accompanied groups. The exhibition area of the Museum, located on the first floor, is set around a large covered central piazza and hosts the section of the museum itinerary holding the works from the permanent collection and halls given over to the large temporary shows. The space is rounded out by the auditorium, a theatre that sits three hundred, devoted to performance and visual arts.

On the second floor on the other hand there is the MUDEC Club restaurant, which offers unseen glimpses over the building and the surrounding area and aims to be a container for events linked to the art-world: artistic performances, presentations, and workshops will be held in series over a yearly calendar and will stimulate the artistic spirit of this space.

Finally, MUDEC Junior is the space specifically dedicated to children, where it is proposed bringing the younger ones closer to the diverse cultures of the world through activities of play, multimedia stations and manual workshops.

SFMOMA opens May 14 as biggest modern art museum in the (US)
By Sam Whiting Updated 5:26 pm, Wednesday, October 21, 2015

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art announced Wednesday that it will reopen May 14, 2016, after being closed for three years of expansion. When it does, it will have seven floors of exhibition space, and one of those floors, the fourth, is larger than all five floors from the original building designed by Mario Botta that opened 20 years ago.

“This is a game changer for San Francisco,” said SFMOMA Director Neal Benezra. “It lifts us to the top ranks for museums of modern and contemporary art in the world.”

What started as an addition to display 1,100 artworks on loan from the Fisher family has ended up with more than 4,000 new works in the largest modern and contemporary art museum in America and the largest museum of any kind in Northern California, as measured by gallery space.

The stand-alone 10-story architectural statement by the Norwegian firm Snohetta rises over the original five-story brick box like a gray silo looming over a red barn. The new SFMOMA meets the old one at a seismic joint and flows as one to create 460,000 square feet. This includes 145,000 feet of interior gallery space, which is 20,000 feet more than at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the next largest.

. . . its exhibition space is 50 percent larger than the Getty Center in Los Angeles and is second only to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Smithsonian of the West, which boasts 230,000 feet.

To fill the space, SFMOMA has recently acquired or been promised 3,000 works from 200 donors for its permanent collection. Six hundred of these will be introduced when the museum reopens, including works by Pablo Picasso, Jasper Johns, Ed Ruscha, Diane Arbus and Robert Rauschenberg.

And that’s not counting the 1,100 works on 100-year loan from the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection, which were the incentive for the new building in the first place. Some 260 of these, by 68 artists, will open the new museum. It will take four galleries just to show the Fisher holding of paintings by Ellsworth Kelly. Then there are the 24 works by Sol LeWitt, 23 by Gerhard Richter and 21 by Andy Warhol.
