Photo and description
Against the backdrop of many museums and galleries in Cyprus, where works of art found during excavations that date back to antiquity and the Middle Ages are presented, the State Gallery of Modern Art located in Nicosia stands out quite strongly. It is located right in the historic center of this ancient city, not far from the Venetian Walls. This museum has a truly unique collection of works by Cypriot artists and craftsmen who have worked over a period of time starting from the late 19th century. There is also a large collection of works by very young Cypriot artists.
The gallery was created relatively recently - in 1994 and is part of the City Arts Center, which is located in the building of an old power plant.
The collection of the museum was collected for a long time - museums, public organizations, creative communities of Cyprus, Greece and other European countries participated in this process. In the museum you can see works of different styles and trends: painting, sculpture, installations. The main feature of almost all the exhibits presented in the Gallery is an amazing combination of art and modern technology. Particular attention should be paid to engravings made by modern masters - they imitate engravings of the Middle Ages with such amazing accuracy that only a specialist can distinguish them.
From time to time, the Gallery also hosts exhibitions of contemporary artists from other countries.
What's especially nice is that visiting the Art Center is completely free.
