Refurbishment works on the H-shaped building at the former Rikard Benčić factory complex, which has been the home of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art since 2017, were financed in the amount of 9.2 million HRK by the City of Rijeka.
Dinko Peračić was the lead designer.
The Museum will become fully functional following the refurbishment and the expansion of the MoMaCA into the remainder of the H-shaped building, the ownership of which is being negotiated with the PIK Company.
In 2017, the Museum moved into the 1550 m² equipped and refurbished area occupying the ground floor, first floor and the hall therein.
The architect Dinko Peračić won the Croatian Architects’ Association Bernardo Bernardi Award in 2018 for the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MoMaCa) project in Rijeka.
The Museum will open with a large-scale and dynamic retrospective of the recently deceased veteran of contemporary Croatian art Tomislav Gotovac.
