GAMeC

Description

GAMeC – Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art – was established in 1991 right in front of its “older sister”, the Accademia Carrara Pictures Gallery, in a finely restored building dating back to the XV Century that used to be a monastery. The whole XX Century is displayed across its ten exhibition rooms: paintings and sculptures by worldwide renowned artists, divided into thematic areas. One of the most outstanding ones is the Manzù Collection. In fact, here in his hometown you will find the best pieces by Giacomo Manzoni, a.k.a. Giacomo Manzù, the world famous artist from Bergamo whose sculptures are exhibited all over the planet. The other Collections will take you to a journey across the Early XX Century artistic ferment, making you discover the best trends and the most influential art movements: from the European paintings of the ‘50s and the ‘60s (mostly belonging to the so-called Informal Art), to the modern art masterpieces by Balla, Boccioni, De Chirico, Kandinsky and Morandi. Moreover, you will have the chance to admire many other masterpieces by some ‘30s artists, such as Sironi, or even by contemporary artists like Cattelan, Beecroft, Man and Basilico.
A surprising journey across our most recent past and today’s international art, all held inside the 1.500 square meters of GAMeC!


GAMeC is able to amaze adults and children, too: in fact, the art gallery organizes many events and initiatives for different age groups, starting from toddlers. Children can enjoy art by means of funny games and entertaining workshops, carried out all year round for children aged 3 and older.
Young people can also enjoy GAMeC on Sunday from May to September, thanks to the amazing happy hours taking place in the courtyard: art happening and DJ sets, live music and drinks, all surrounded by stunning art masterpieces.
Moreover, GAMeC constantly collaborates with Bergamo University, with the District Prison, with many associations dealing with disability and psychological distress, with foreign communities in the area and with many other local bodies sharing the healing power of art.
Last but not least, numerous events related to specific art fields take place from time to time, such as photography workshops, painting glasses, expressiveness workshops, lectures and so much more…a rich art catalogue at your complete disposal!
