The Fundación Pablo Atchugarry in Miami is delighted to present an introductory exhibition in honor of the inauguration of The Atchugarry Museum of Contemporary Art, MACA, slated to open in Punta del Este, Uruguay in January 2022. The first and only museum in Uruguay promoting global contemporary art, MACA, concludes a sequence of structures realized by internationally acclaimed sculptor, Pablo Atchugarry. The museum permanently houses the Atchugarry collection that includes more than fifty works by Latin American and European artists, including Julio Le Parc, Carlos Cruz Diez, Joaquín...Torres García, Ernesto Neto and Camilo Arden Quin, among others. Spanning across 90 acres of natural landscape, the museum hopes to become a creative hub for its community, where so many artists have left a permanent mark in the history of art. Pablo Atchugarry is renowned for his monumental public sculptures that contemplate the grandiosity of nature and its unstoppable strength. He currently lives and works between Uruguay and Italy, where he oversees the development of the Fundación Pablo Atchugarry, the international monumental Sculpture Park, and now, the Atchugarry Museum of Contemporary Art (MACA). His sculptures are part of numerous private and public collections such as the Fundació Fran Daurel in Barcelona, Spain; the Bellinson Center in Petah Tikva, Israel; the Museu Coleção Berardo in Portugal and the Collezione Fontana in Italy among others.

Designed by the world renowned architect Carlos Ott, Introducing MACA, will also feature behind-the-scenes footage that delves into the making of the museum and its two-year long construction process. What began as a dream many years ago for Atchugarry is now nearing its final stage of construction and growing thanks to the generosity of the artists and friends of the museum.
"MACA is the cultural heritage that I leave for Uruguay" –Pablo Atchugarry
Fundación Pablo Atchugarry is a non profit institution, founded in Manantiales, Uruguay in 2007 by the sculptor Pablo Atchugarry.
In December 2018, the Fundación Pablo Atchugarry opened its second location, in a space adjacent to the Piero Atchugarry Gallery, in the neighborhood of Little Haiti, in Miami, FL, located near Miami’s Design District.
The exhibition program combines both contemporary and modern art, to bring a refreshing look at art history and to foster an understanding of how art movements can influence each other through time and space.
