The MUAC building, by Teodoro González de León, one of Mexico’s most renowned architects, is itself a work of art, with a futuristic design and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that flood the building with natural light. Located in the south of the city in the Centro Cultural Universitario at UNAM (the city’s main university), this is the place to see the best Mexican contemporary art as well as visiting exhibitions, such as those of Brazilian sculptor and conceptual artist Cildo Meireles and Peruvian artist Fernando Bryce. Many of the exhibitions are interactive with audio and video. The art doesn’t end with a visit to the museum. Just outside is a sculpture garden with works by contemporary Mexican artists and murals by David Alfaro Siqueiros (on the university’s Rectorate Tower) and Juan O'Gorman (on the Central Library). Or you can just sit on the lawn and people-watch.
