The Civic Museums Contemporary Art Collection

The Civic Museums of Cagliari choose the spaces of the the Covered Walkway inside the San Remy Bastion to exhibit the Contemporary Art Collection of Cagliari, which includes paintings, sculptures and graphic works attributable to Pop Art and Conceptual Art, Minimal Art and Arte Povera, Abstraction, Analytical Painting and Optical Art, including the works of thirteen Sardinian artists.
 
Inaugurated in March 1975, the Contemporary Art Collection was strongly desired by Ugo Ugo, director of the Municipal Art Gallery from 1966 to 1985, who decided to show in Cagliari the most significant works of contemporary research in the national and international fields between the '60 and the '70.
 
Now, the repositioning and complete rearrangement of the Contemporary Art Collection  inside the Covered Walkway is a concrete attempt of the Civic Museums  to confirm its cultural offer  despite the problems deriving from  the COVID-19 health emergency.
 
The public will enjoy the indoor space and at the same time, the Contemporary Collection, until today exhibited in a reduced form at the Municipal Art Gallery.
 
The Ugo Collection is the first exhibition exposed in the the Covered Walkway, a perfect combination capable of managing  the use of spaces dedicated to culture, during a historical moment in which everything has become more difficult.
