Museum of Contemporary Art of Madrid

Madrid Museum of Contemporary Art

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Madrid is located in the North Patio of the historic building of the Cuartel del Conde Duque , a building that Felipe V commissioned in 1717 to the architect Pedro de Ribera and which exhibits a magnificent stone portal in Baroque style.

The collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art is essentially composed of painting and graphics , but sculpture, photography and drawing are also represented. The permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art begin to take shape in the late 1970s, when a new phase of acquisitions begins in which there is an unequivocal commitment to fully contemporary artistic expressions.

It collects both pieces of the historical avant-gardes and of the genuinely Madrid school , as well as the artistic creations related to the Movida of the Eighties . The museum is expanding both the spaces and the collections to accommodate the most emerging artists. It also programs temporary exhibitions, conferences and other information activities.

Inaugurated in 2001, the current permanent exhibition presents a significant collection of collections, which includes painting, sculpture, photography, drawing and graphics, under the title The order of the collection; as well as the study of the writer Ramón Gómez de la Serna (Madrid, 1888 - Buenos Aires, 1963), a central figure of the Madrid artistic avant-garde of the first third of the twentieth century, whose collection of objects is conceived as a museum within a museum.
