Museo Municipal de Arte Contemporáneo information
Closed for major renovation works at the time of research, this rich collection of modern Spanish art includes mostly paintings and graphic art with a smattering of photography, sculpture and drawings. Highlights include Eduardo Arroyo and Basque sculptor Jorge Oteiza. Running throughout the collection are creative interpretations of Madrid’s cityscape – avant-garde splodges and almost old-fashioned visions of modern Madrid side by side, among them a typically fantastical representation of the Cibeles fountain by one-time icon of la movida madrileña (the Madrid scene), Ouka Leele.
The museum is inside the Antiguo Cuartel del Conde Duque.
