This contemporary art museum reflects the vibrant art scene that is thriving in Valencia. The museum is split into two buildings that house over 10,000 works that illustrate the fundamental expressions of art in the 20th century.
The Julio González Centre, opened in 1989, contains both permanent and temporary exhibits displaying works from Abstract and Pop Art, through to European Informalism and the New Figurative movement. Its permanent collection showcases works by Julio González, a leading modern Spanish artist, as well as works by equally celebrated artists, including Ignacio Pinazo, Tàpies, Chillida, Arroyo, and Paul Klee.
The Sala de la Muralla, opened in 1991, is located in the basement and houses a large stretch of Valencia’s medieval city wall, which was demolished over one century ago and discovered during the building of the museum.
