Hg2 : The Hedonist

Museum of Modern Art

Making a huge impact on Baku’s art scene is the brand new, Jean Nouvel designed, Museum of Modern Art. Based on the success of the Guggenheim in Bilbao and capitalising on the city’s status as the Islamic Culture Capital in 2009, the museum is designed to showcase work of contemporary Azeri artists. The collection houses over 800 works, ranging from sculpture andrninstallations to painting and photography taken from the 1940s onwards. Azerbaijan is now establishing itself on the international arts scene producing spectacular pavillions at the Venice Biennale. The building itself is well worth a visit on its own.
