CAM_Casoria Contemporary Art Museum was born in 2005 with the aim to become a cultural pole, an experimental laboratory but, above all, as a point of reference for universal contemporary art with an open context.
Founded and directed by Antonio Manfredi, starts from the general consideration that a public collection of art is mirror of the times art and culture. Therefore the attention of the museum team is focused on a fundamental aim: the Museum to be a cultural reference point, stimulating for everybody and not at all a static place. The Museum means therefore to be a place of meeting and exchange, with wide and several cultural programs addressed to the visitors.
CAM_Casoria Contemporary Art Museum was not born as mere cultural exhibition machine, not even as museum containing simulacra, but it is close to how we would like a museum to be today: a place where culture and research is produced, where didactics is carried, stimulating an hermeneutic experience of the contemporary, where creativity is visualized, where the current aesthetic complexity is known and practiced.
It permanently exposes and has acquired in its collection 1200 works ca of contemporary art of painting, sculpture, photography, video and installations by important worldwide artists. Its multimedia and far east art collection is among the biggest and its collection of contemporary Neapolitan artists (from the second post-war period till today) is among the most complete in Italy.
Among its activities is the promotion, exhibition, cataloguing, collection of works and books on contemporary art.
