The Civic Museums Contemporary Art Collection
Cagliari's Civic Museums choose the Covered Walkway of the Saint Remy Bastion to exhibit the Contemporary Art Collection, 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 wanted by Ugo Ugo, director of the Municipal Art Gallery from 1966 to 1985, who decided to show Cagliari the most significant works of the contemporary artistic research held between the 60s and the 70s.
The complete rearrangement of the Contemporary Art Collection inside the Covered Walkway is a concrete attempt to confirm Cagliari's cultural offer despite the issues related to the Coronavirus emergency.
Visitors will have the opportunity to admire both the magnificent complex of the Saint Remy Bastion and the works of the Contemporary Art Collection, which were only partially exhibited inside the Municipal Art Gallery.
The Ugo Collection is the first permanent exhibition hosted inside the Covered Walkway offering locals and tourists a new space for art and culture.
