|About the museum:
The building of the Museum of Modern Art, Dubrovnik, was built between 1935 and 1939 to be the grand residence of Dubrovnik ship owner Božo Banac. It was designed by the architects Lavoslav Horvat and Harold Bilinić in neo-Renaissance and Gothic style, along the lines of the masterpieces of Dubrovnik town and villa architecture of the Renaissance. In 1950 the Banac mansion was turned into an exhibition and museum space. The conversion works gave the structure nine exhibition rooms, two stores and several working premises. Together with a great terrace facing onto the sea, and the garden, the Gallery has 900 metres of indoor and more than 1100 square metres of outdoor exhibition space. The basis of the museum is national art from the end of the 19th century and the beginning of Croatian modernism. Also of interest to it, however, is everything that happened after that, particularly the current moment in Croatian and world art. The Museum of Modern Art, as a museum of modern and contemporary art, has a collection of works of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, covering paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, installations, photographs and videos. The artists whose works are part of the museum are some of the leading figures of home and international modern and contemporary art.
