NuMu is the first and only contemporary art museum in Guatemala, dedicated exclusively to supporting, exhibiting, and documenting contemporary art. Our physical space measures approximately 2 x 2.5 meters and is shaped like an egg, as it was originally designed as a drive-thru egg selling kiosk.
NuMu re-evaluates what it means to be a contemporary art museum in the 21st century, in both the local context of Guatemala City and the international art scene.
Central to our mission, is to offer the necessary support to realize artistic projects of great value, despite the shortage of local institutions and both private and governmental funding. We believe that by carefully combining local and international projects, we are creating opportunities for collaborations to take place and critical thought to develop. For us, this project is about bringing people together to experiment, question, and share.
