The Museum of Contemporary Art is located in the historic Quarters of the Count-Duke, designed by the architect Pedro de Ribera and, dating from the beginning of the 18th century. As in other local or foreign contemporary art museums, a historic building has been used to house contemporary art collections from the Madrid City Council, as a part of a comprehensive rehabilitation of buildings for cultural uses and services.
The Museum of Contemporary Art collection is mainly made up of paintings and graphic art, although sculptures, photographs, and drawings are also included. Located on the second floor of the Museum, the permanent collection is structured chronologically and subdivided into the following sections: New Creators, Realisms, New Figuration and 80’s Abstraction, Caneja Legacy, Masters of Abstraction, The School of Madrid, and Historical Avant-Gardes.
