El Museo del Barrio

Museum in Harlem & Upper Manhattan

Bienvenido to one of New York’s premier Latino cultural institutions, with thoughtful rotating exhibitions that span all media, from painting and photography to video and site-specific installations. The shows often highlight El Museo’s strong permanent collection, which includes pre-Columbian artifacts, traditional folk works and a stellar array of postwar art made by a wide range of Latino artists.

The museum includes pieces by well-known historical figures like Chilean surrealist Roberto Matta and established contemporary artists such as Félix González-Torres and Pepón Osorio.
