Contemporary Art

The most recent section of the collections of the Museo d'arte Mendrisio ranges through a multiplicity of research and expressive media: from painting to photography, from video art to sculpture, from engraving techniques to installations. The panorama is mainly focused on the local scene that has been able, in the last years of the 20th century and in the first decades of the 21st, to develop an original production of a high technical and conceptual level.
Thanks to a new acquisition campaign, the Museo d'arte Mendrisio has turned its gaze to the latest generations of local artists, considerably broadening the perspective of its collections and including recent works and productions.
