The Modern And Contemporary Art Museum

MACAM is a new cultural institution dedicated to exhibiting, documenting, and preserving art in Lebanon.


To promote art appreciation, foster creativity, preserve artwork, and be a hub for art in Lebanon through
Exhibitions: Highlighting prominent artists, distinguished art collections, art themes, or eras of art in Lebanon.
Documentation: Establishing and updating a database of books and artwork to become a resource center for modern and contemporary art in Lebanon.
Outreach: Organizing and fostering cultural activities by involving the community in activities such as performing arts, theater, concerts, dance, and talks.
MACAM is more than an exhibition space. It is here to foster talent and creativity, and provide the place, the information, and the events that bring people and art together.


The museum is composed of two adjacent workshops built in the 1970s. and transformed into two large exhibition halls. It has about 6,000 square meters of open air space, and about 4,000 square meters of interior, with ceilings reaching up to 8 meters in height
Hall for Installation Art
Installations are ephemeral after exhibitions. They are often dismantled and disposed of. Since 1980, Lebanon has witnessed a growing number of art installations, with no effort to preserve them. At MACAM, they will be preserved and appropriately exhibited.
Hall for Modern and Contemporary Art
MACAM organizes exhibitions of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and other art disciplines, produced in Lebanon or abroad, and in collaboration with private collectors, museums, and public institutions. Close ties are also being established with museums across the Arab world.
