Museum of Modern Art - a showcase of avant-garde art with free architectural forms, conspicuous metallic structures

Baku, April 11, AZERTAC

The Museum of Modern Art basis - is the collection of the best works of painting and sculpture of Azerbaijan avant-guardists from 2nd half of the 20th century up to now. The collection shows aspirations, strivings and freedom of human soul.

The museum is designed as a single organism combining art and sculpture, design and architecture. The author of the museum concept, architecture and design, the collection and exposition selection is the artist Altay Sadikhzade. The main idea assumes the following: the halls without an angle, open passages make the review perspective and multidimensional and creates the effect of labyrinth; the bending walls in different angles make an illusion of continuous movement. There are no confined spaces in the museum. A two-storey building is designed as a whole with an architectural linking device – an art-object of “forgotten staircase”. Another joining factor is the color –every part of the museum is white.

The museum itself is a showcase of avant-garde art with its free architectural forms, conspicuous metallic structures, a well-chosen and artistically designed exposition of paintings and sculptures.
