Opened in 1994, the cutting edge Museum of Modern and
Contemporary Art refuses to conform and as museum director
Christian Bernard says, the museum 'is not here to present the
acceptable face of contemporary art'. With modern works dating from
the 1960s to the present day, exhibited in a turn of the century
factory, visitors to MAMCO will spend hours marvelling at the range
of contemporary art that covers three floors. The Museum of Modern
and Contemporary Art constantly reinvents itself, changing its
exhibits and interior construction three times a year. The works of
famous Dadaist Marcel Duchamp are on display all year round.
