Museo Luis Adolfo Noboa Naranjo
On top of housing important avant-garde pieces of artwork, this museum will also hold the Bienniel of Contemporary Art
Private collection of an important Ecuadorian entrepreneur
More commonly known by its initials, LANN, the Museo Luis Adolfo Noboa Naranjo has become since 2006 a reference point for the international avant-garde artistic movements. Its name pays tribute to the successful Ecuadorian entrepreneur who left as inheritance for his children the collection of pictorial works that interested him. This included paintings from the Quito School (Escuela Quiteña), by Oswaldo Guayasmín and murals by Manuel Rendón. However, its strong point is the Biennial of Painting which has been held in this museum since 2008. Each time it is held, it brings together the main Ecuadorian and international contemporary artists, those producing fine art as well as photographic art. The philanthropic aim of the museum also focuses on paintings carried out by disabled children as well as promotion of work by the country's emerging artists. If you are interested in art, this centre is, undoubtedly, the place to learn about new trends.
