Aldo Rubino built his entire career as a finance specialist, working on national and multinational companies. He began collecting art in the late 1980s. Over the years he defined a profile based on local and international contemporary art with special emphasis on geometric abstraction. Followed by a strong desire to open the collection to the general public, in 2009 he took the decision to create a museum space, constructing for this purpose a new building thought to house his permanent collection, exhibitions and multiple activities related to art. In 2012 Rubino founded the MACBA – Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Buenos Aires, located in the traditional neighbourhood of San Telmo. Born in Argentina, Rubino lives between Buenos Aires and New York.
