The Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina in Novi Sad is an open, efficient and highly professional institution with the mission to collect, preserve, exhibit, interpret and promote the artistic heritage of the contemporary art and culture in Vojvodina and region.
Museum activities that encourage debate, exchange and collaboration, strive to create a dialogue in an environment that identifies the issues of the modern and contemporary art while being accessible to the audiences of all ages.
Since its establishment, the main role of the Museum has been to collect and preserve the contemporary artworks of the outstanding quality. Although the quality remains the undisputed primary selection criteria for the artworks exhibited in the Museum, we have also recognized the need to take bigger role in education. That is the reason why we aim to build an art collection, composed not only of the first-rate works of art, but the one that represents the unique and complete study of modern tendencies in all visual art mediums.
