Contemporary Art Museum

The Contemporary Art Museum is one of the largest and most complete national institutions of Macedonia. Located in the capital city of Skopje, the museum was founded in 1963 following the disastrous earthquake that hit the city. The building project was donated by the Polish Government.

The collection is made up of two segments; international and national. The international segment of the collections reflects the modern art from almost all parts of the world. The larger part of the collection marks the art movements of the 1950s, 1960’s and 1970s, although it contains also around a hundred works of the early modern art.

The older exhibits are mainly highlighted by works of Emil Filla, Fernand Léger, and André Masson.
