About the museum

The Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb was founded in 1954 under the name City Gallery of Contemporary Art.
The goal of this institution was to promote and collect recently produced artworks of younger generations which, among others, encompassed the achievements of the Exat 51 group – Ivan Picelj, Vjenceslav Richter, Aleksandar Srnec, Božidar Rašica, Vlado Kristl and others – artists who advocated geometric abstraction,
developing forth the heritage of historical avant-garde.

The Museum moved into the new building in December 2009.
The specific MSU Collections, formed during a period of half a century at the cultural border between the East and the West, rich exhibition and educative programs, archives, library, audio-visual centre, multimedia hall and many other facilities are now accessible to Croatian and international public.
