The avant-garde movements of the 20th century

The museum's programme of exhibitions revolves around the research and dissemination of contemporary art movements.

The museum takes a look at the artistic avant-garde of the 20th century, from Abstract and Pop Art, through to European Informalism and the New Figurative movement. Its permanent exhibition features the Julio González and Pinazo collections, and it offers a programme of activities with temporary exhibitions, lectures, courses and workshops. There is also an underground room where visitors can see a large stretch of Valencia's mediaeval city wall, which was demolished over one century ago and discovered during the building works for the museum.
