The GAMeC is Bergamo’s modern and contemporary art gallery, a multifaceted location offering spaces for temporary exhibitions, experimental projects dedicated to the collections, and mediation, integration and teaching activities for various types of visitors. A visual culture workshop, a place for exploration, experimentation and sharing of the languages of modernity, in continual dialogue with the demands of our times.
The Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo was opened in 1991. Since 2000 GAMeC’s cultural activities have been managed by the Associazione per la Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo – Onlus, whose Founding Members are the Municipality of Bergamo and TenarisDalmine, with Supporters the Fondazione UBI Banca Popolare di Bergamo Onlus, Bonaldi Motori S.p.A. and Carvico S.p.A., and Fidelitas S.p.A. as Security Partner.
A virtuous model of shared public-private management, the museum is located in front of the neoclassical building that houses the Accademia Carrara, in the spaces once occupied by the fifteenth-century Monastery of the Dimesse and Servite, the restoration of which was entrusted to Studio Gregotti Associati International in the late nineties.
