MUVA: a virtual museum in Uruguay
An architecturally stunning museum with a unique collection of contemporary art, MUVA can be found only on the Internet – and in the imagination of the creative team responsible for its existence. Alicia Haber is its director and guiding spirit. She is a teacher of art history and has served as artistic adviser and chief exhibition curator for the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Montevideo since 1988. The author of many books and monographs, she has also received a number of prestigious grants and awards, including the Rockefeller Foundation Mentor Grant and a Fulbright grant for research on art administration to work at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. One of Uruguay's most renowned art critics, she was elected the best Latin American critic of the year in 1988 by the Art Critics Association of Argentina.
