The Bohemian Gallery and Museum of Contemporary Art in Montevideo reopened its doors in March following a six-month renovation. The cultural centre, museum and contemporary art gallery, run by the Uruguayan collector and gallerist Virginia Robinson, is located in the classic Tajamar, a 1940s building in the Carrasco district, which was designed by the Uruguayan architect Juan Antonio Scasso.

One of the museum’s main objectives is to introduce world-class exhibitions to Montevideo. “For the first time in Uruguay there is a world-class museum with shows that will travel to other international museums, and that features international works,” Robinson says. She also manages a second space, the Bohemian Gallery in Overland Park, Kansas.

The inaugural exhibitions in Montevideo feature work by the American artist and writer William Burroughs and the Uruguayan artist Agueda Dicancro, and shows are planned for work by such artists as Marc Chagall, Bert Stern, Leonor Fini, Leonora Carrington and Julian Schnabel. Robinson is also planning cultural exchanges between the US and Uruguay, and a contest for a Uruguayan artist residence through the John Robinson Foundation.
