Located in the heart of the city, next to the Place Garibaldi and in the extension of the Coulée Verte, the MAMAC offers a dive into the adventure of art from the 1950s to today.
The Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain de Nice will close its doors on 7 January 2024, to be renovated and incorporated into the major Promenade du Paillon 2 project.
The collection, with more than 1,400 works by 350 artists, offers a unique dialogue between European New Realism and the American expression of assemblage art and Pop Art. The museum also displays key works of minimal art and arte povera. Two major figures of 20th century art form the core of the collections: Yves Klein, with a permanent room unique in the world, made possible by the Yves Klein Archives, and Niki de Saint Phalle, which represents one of the most important collections of the artist in Europe following her donation in 2001.
The museum offers a regular program of international exhibitions on the first floor and in its contemporary gallery, alternating thematic exhibitions and monographs of major personalities of the art of the last sixty years.
Guided tours, workshops, informal meetings with artists or researchers in the galleries, storytelling tours, lectures or screenings in the auditorium, dance tours, concerts, performances and events make contemporary art accessible to as many people as possible. A hundred or so events a year make the museum a place for living and sharing.
