Museum of Goa (MOG) is an endeavor to take art to the masses. It seeks to break social and cultural barriers and make art accessible to all.
This inclusive space for the Arts will bring together artists, curators, collectors, art enthusiasts, educators, students and audiences from all walks of life. It will host exhibitions, as well as workshops, residencies, lectures, talks and art courses. MOG intends to be a platform for contemporary Indian and international artists, building a cultural network for exchange and interaction.
Envisioned less as a repository of objects and more as a laboratory of ideas, MOG welcomes multidisciplinary art forms – painting, sculpture, photography, design, moving image, music, theater, poetry, installation, and others – to have constant dialogue with one other. Contemporary art is a universal language of sharing and communication today. Through MOG, Goa is positioned in a global conversation, and is placed on the international art map.
MOG offers 1,500 square meters of space to display art and is centrally located in Pilerne Industrial Estate, Bardez, Goa. The three storey structure is designed by the well-known architect Dean D’Cruz. Standing between industries on one side and forestland on the other, it houses galleries, an Art Store, a café, an auditorium and studios for artists.
