Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art
The Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art was established in 1979 by a group of visionary people who wanted to create an institution that would on the one hand promote Greek and international contemporary art by informing the public about art and aesthetics, and on the other publicise contemporary Greek cultural life abroad. These aims are achieved by organising solo, group, and retrospective exhibitions, round tables, and talks and by taking part in international programmes. This is a living museum, which follows cultural movement at an international level.
It also offers guided tours and, in the framework of EU programmes, collaborates with other museums with a view to devising educational programmes for adults.
Other events hosted by the MMCA include lectures, discussions on subjects relating to aesthetics, art history, and the organisation of museums and collections, presentations of books and art projects, meetings with artists, happenings, and bazaars.
In the library two-and-a-half thousand titles of books and periodicals on subjects relating to painting, sculpture, engraving, architecture, and photography, all the catalogues published by the MMCA, audio-visual material, and the museum's archive of artists are available to the public.
