The museum

Artium represents the benchmark among museums of Contemporary Art. This is thanks to a collection which, boasting almost 3,000 individual works principally by artist of Basque and Spanish origin, is one of the finest in existence in the fiel of Contemporary Art, and is certainly the most important of its kind within the Basque Country: a colle ction that ranges from Picasso and Miró to Barceló and Elena Rivero; from Chillida and Oteiza to Cristina Iglesias and Txomin Badiola; from Richard Serra to Bill Viola - not to mention new generations of artist. What´s more ARTIUM also sets the standard with an ambitious programme of exhibitions encompassing works of a most local and international nature, an intensive schedule of activities relating to contemporary art (cinema, performing arts, music, courses...), a dynamic and active Information Resource Centre and a commitment towards educational and social outreach.
