The Center for Contemporary Art of Montenegro is one of the most important cultural institutions of the country, located in its capital, Podgorica. Founded in 1995, the gallery is sheltered within the monumental Petrovic Castle. The Center’s permanent collection includes a unique and international selection of over 1,000 artworks from 60 different countries, broken up into four collections: African, Asian, Latin-American and European art. Nowhere else in south-eastern Europe can you find such a showcase of important and diverse works as at the Center for Contemporary Art of Montenegro. There are also two smaller galleries that belong to the Center, the Perjanicki Dom and the Centar, which are used for specific exhibitions and cultural events.
Founded in the 1990s, Pizana Gallery exhibits works by young Montenegrin artists who express their vision in different forms, including painting (Tadija Janičić, Milena Durutović, Milka Vujović), graphics (Biljana Keković, igor Rakčević) and sculpture (Željko Reljić, Ivanka Prelević-Vana), or a combination of these; but exhibitions of major artists such as Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol have been presented in the past as well. The gallery has acted as a creative hub and starting point for a range of cultural initiatives, and keeps itself busy by presenting the works of its artists in local and international art fairs. Pizana gallery has two different exhibition spaces in Montenegro: a 200 square-meter one in the capital, Podgorica; and another in the smaller city of Tivat.
