Museo Rufino Tamayo is a public contemporary art museum located in Mexico City’s Chapultepec Park, that produces innovative international contemporary art exhibitions, using its collection of modern and contemporary art, as well as artworks from the collection of its founder, the artist Rufino Tamayo. Seeking to establish itself as a point of reference of the twenty-first century museum in Mexico and Latin America, the museum produces exhibitions and public programming generating knowledge and information to a diverse audience, enriching and fostering the aesthetic experience and critical senses of its spectators. The museum aims to stimulate dialogue serving as a platform for the various projects that are being developed in different areas of cultural production, including design, architecture and publishing, amongst others. The building was the first major museum in Mexico built with private funds, with Tamayo participating in its design, which won the Premio Nacional de Arte in 1982. The Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes (INBA) has run the museum since 1986 and in 2012, the facility was expanded from three halls to five.
