The main exhibits displayed at the Museum of Modern Art are the best paintings and sculptures of the avant-garde art of Azerbaijan since the second half of the XX century. This exposition represents the artist's observations, searches and the freedom of the human spirit. The museum is designed as a single organism that combines architecture, design, painting and sculpture, both in terms of exhibited works and appearance. One of the main principles of the museum is freedom and the absence of strictly defined frames in the expositions. The architecture of the building also emphasizes these features: the lack of corners and closed forms, open passages, location of the two floors in a single open space and the connection via the "forgotten stairs", etc.
Today, the museum has about 800 exhibits. The works of Azerbaijani artists and sculptors - Ashraf Murad, Eldar Mammadov, Mirnadir Zeynalov, Altay Sadikhzade, as well as representatives of the fine arts - Sattar Bahlulzade, Boyukaga Mirzazade, Elmira Shahtakhtinskaya, Tahir Salahov, Omar Eldarov, Nadir Abdurrahmanov are displayed there. The museum's exposition covers not only its halls, but also its surroundings - art cafes and restaurants. In addition, the museum has an exhibition of children's art, a video hall, a library and a shop. In the hall of the Metropolis Gallery, visitors can buy works of art by modern authors. You can visit the museum throughout the week except Monday from 11:00 to 20:00. The tickets can be purchased at the museum's entrance.
