Contemporary Art

Permanent Installation

Since its founding, the BMA has been exhibiting and collecting works by contemporary artists, resulting in an impressive collection of 20th- and 21st-century art. The collection has unique strength in works by women, artists of color, and artists whose work makes a profound social statement.

The Contemporary Wing features more than 100 paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, and moving image works, creating thought-provoking encounters with contemporary art.

In addition to the permanent collection, works on display include the acclaimed Front Room series, media works in the Black Box gallery, and a dedicated presentation of the BMA's renowned holdings of contemporary prints, drawings, and photographs.
