Nuevo Museo de Arte Contemporáneo – NuMu

Founded in 2012 in Guatemala City, Guatemala
Co-founders y Co-directors: Stefan Benchoam and Jessica Kairé

Nuevo Museo de Arte Contemporáneo-NuMu-is the first museum in Guatemala exclusively dedicated to contemporary art. A collaborative project between Jessica Kairé and Stefan Benchoam, NuMu springs from the lack of museums in Guatemala that support, exhibit and document contemporary local and international art.

Located in Guatemala City, NuMu’s physical space measures approximately 2 x 2.5 meters and has the shape of an egg, since it was originally designed for an egg-selling business express style.

Our annual Exhibitions Program consists of four exhibitions, at least two interdisciplinary activities in-between exhibitions, and an educational component for each event. All of our activities are open to the public and are free, thanks to the generous support of Amigos del NuMu (Friends of NuMu).
