Galleria Provinciale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea
Where Piazza XX Settembre c/o Palazzo Dogana, 20, Foggia
The Provincial Art Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art was opened in September 1980 in Foggia. It was initially located in two narrow and not very functional rooms on the ground floor of Palazzo Dogana. In the mid-eighties the role of the gallery, selections of exhibitions, the enlargement and adaptation of space and the type of management were uncertain. Inaugurated in 2003, the new Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art occupies about half of the ground floor of Palazzo Dogana. It is housed in restored rooms, according to modern museological needs thanks to POR 2000-2006. The purpose of the Gallery is to document, especially with future acquisitions and its archive, the artistic activity in Capitanata between the XIX and XX century and to promote, with special exhibitions, the knowledge of the most advanced contemporary art.
