Presentation of works

As a museum of modern and contemporary art, certain artistic and conservation norms must be applied. Therefore, inside the galleries there may be certain lighting and signage conditions as well as distances from the artworks that must be kept and may not provide optimum visibility. Similarly, the particular characteristics of each work of art are based on artistic criteria and are therefore inalterable.
