The Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo was opened in 1991.

A virtuous model of shared public-private management, the museum is located 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 between the late eighties and the nineties.

Over the years, diversified planning has transformed it into a versatile space that draws many types of visitors with its targeted activities. With its 1,500 square meters of exhibition space, GAMeC welcomes contemporary art in all its forms.

Temporary personal and collective exhibitions by international artists, and an intense calendar of fringe activities designed for different types of users are among the strong points of the Gallery’s cultural policy. It is a dynamic place for debate, analysis, and cultural integration, and one evolving daily.

Thanks to both donations and acquisitions, the Gallery has built the collection of modern and contemporary art of the city of Bergamo, which includes works by Italian and international authors of the twentieth century, and works by contemporary artists.

GAMeC is a supporter and founding member of the association AMACI – Associazione dei Musei d’Arte Contemporanea Italiani, and works actively with contemporary art museums and centers both in Italy and abroad.
