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.

Please note: The Baltimore presentation of Tomorrow is Another Day, Mark Bradford’s exhibition for the U.S. Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale, will be on view in the Contemporary Wing this fall. In preparation, galleries on the second floor of the Contemporary Wing will be unavailable. To inquire about a specific work on view, please call 443-573-1701.
