The Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo ("University Museum of Contemporary Art"), also known as MUAC, is a large contemporary art museum on the campus of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). It opened in November 2008. The architect was Teodoro González de León, who also co-designed the National Auditorium (Auditorio Nacional), Reforma 222 and the Museo Rufino Tamayo. [2][3][4]

In 2013 Mexican curator Cuauhtémoc Medina was appointed curator in chief.[5] In 2015 adjunct curators Amanda de la Garza and Alejandra Labastida were included in the 25 women curators on the rise list.[6]
