Contacts & Details
The Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo (USP) was created in 1963 when the University of São Paulo received the collection of the former MAM of São Paulo, formed by the collections of Yolanda Penteado and Ciccillo Matarazzo, the collections of works acquired or received in donation during the period of the old MAM and the prizes of the São Paulo Biennials, up to 1961. In 2012, with support from the State Government through the Department of Culture and the University of São Paulo itself, the Museum received a new set of buildings in the Ibirapuera Park, increasing the capacity to house their activities and expose its collection.
