GAMeC – Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art – was established in 1991 right in front of its “older sister”, the Accademia Carrara Picture Gallery, in a finely restored ex-monastery dating back to the XV Century.

The whole XX Century is displayed across its ten exhibition rooms: paintings and sculptures by worldwide renowned artists, divided into thematic areas. One of the most outstanding ones is surely the Manzù Collection.

The other Collections will take you to a journey across the Early XX Century artistic ferment, making you discover the best trends and the most influential art movements: from the European paintings of the ‘50s and the ‘60s (mostly belonging to the so-called Informal Art), to the modern art masterpieces by Balla, Boccioni, De Chirico, Kandinsky and Morandi. Moreover, you will have the chance to admire many other masterpieces by some ‘30s artists, such as Sironi, or even by contemporary artists like Cattelan, Beecroft, Man and Basilico.

A surprising journey across our most recent past and today’s international art, all held inside the 1.500 square meters of GAMeC!

GAMeC is able to amaze both children and adults: in fact, the art gallery organizes many events and initiatives for different age groups, including toddlers.
