The Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo was opened in 1991.

Designed by Vittorio Gregotti, it received financial support from the Municipality of Bergamo and the bank Credito Bergamasco. 

Since 2000 GAMeC’s cultural activities have been managed by the Associazione per la Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo - Onlus, whose Founding Members are the Municipality of Bergamo and TenarisDalmine, with Partners the Fondazione UBI Banca Popolare di Bergamo Onlus, Bonaldi Motori S.p.A. and Carvico S.p.A.

Over the years, diversified planning has transformed it into a versatile space that draws many types of visitor with its targeted activities. With its 1500 square metres of exhibition space, GAMeC welcomes contemporary art in all its forms: temporary personal and collective exhibitions of international artists, new projects by emerging artists, and an intense calendar of side actions designed for different types of user are the strong point of the Gallery’s cultural policy. It is a dynamic place for debate, analysis and cultural integration. Evolving daily.

By means of donations and acquisitions, the Gallery builds its own collection, which currently includes modern authors, masters of the twentieth century and contemporary works of art: Cory Arcangel, Giacomo Balla, Gabriele Basilico, Umberto Boccioni, Alberto Burri, Maurizio Cattelan, Enzo Cucchi, Giorgio de Chirico, Latifa Echakhch, Jean Fautrier, Lucio Fontana, Hans Hartung, Wassilij Kandinskij, Giacomo Manzù, Albert Marquet, Giorgio Morandi, Pino Pascali, Auguste Rodin, Mario Sironi and Sislej Xhafa, just to name a few.

GAMeC’s legacy is supplemented by the Collection of contemporary medals, donated by Vittorio Lorioli, the Nino Zucchelli Collection and Archive and the Lanfranco Colombo Photographic Collection.

In the next years, The Impermanent Collection – a research, display and workshop platform conceived as a fundamental part of the new cultural program drafted by Director Lorenzo Giusti – will put in place an action that not only constitutes a research tool for existing heritage but also a space for reflection on the art of collecting and on institutional acquisition policies, and terrain for curatorial experimentation prior to the opening of the new gallery, scheduled for 2022.

GAMeC is a supporter and founding member of the association AMACI – Associazione dei Musei d’Arte Contemporanea Italiani and works actively with contemporary art museums and centres in Italy and abroad.
