|About the museum:
This is a gallery of contemporary art that possess a smallish holding of artworks from the domain of Croatian modern and contemporary art, that is, of works of art created more or less ever since the 1970s. In the possession of the Velika Gorica adult education institution, alternately, of the Galženica Gallery, are 68 works of art from Croatian Modernism and contemporary art. The actual collection was created mainly during the last twenty years of the gallery’s work, in two main ways: one of the ways of collecting was the state purchase of works of art – via the agency of the one-time culture departments – and then their distribution to various culture centres. The other means was donation, i.e. the artists themselves independently gave their works to the culture centres or galleries. The collection contains several representative works of art from the history of Croatian Modernism and contemporary art, by artists such as Miroslav Šutej, Ivan Lesiak, Valerije Michelli, Ferdinand Kulmer, Milena Lah, Ivo Šebalj, Nikola Koydl, Ivana Franke and others. Because of the shortage of space in which to present the works to the public, the whole of the collection can be viewed on the Gallery’s website.
