The Moderna galerija in Ljubljana is the Slovene national institution for modern and contemporary art. In November 2011  it reorganized its activities into two venues, Moderna galerija (the museum of modern art) in the original modernist building in the city centre  and the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (+MSUM / Muzej sodobne umetnosti Metelkova) in the former army barracks complex in Metelkova Street.  The difference between the two units is based on the historical development of Moderna galerija, founded in 1948, its collections, exhibition policies, and the cultural-political contexts, as well as on the need to reevaluate modernism and articulate contemporaneity.  The Moderna galerija  / Museum of Modern Art (MG+), therefore, focuses on the art of the 20th-century and displays  a selection of works from its national collection from the beginning of the 20th century to 1991 Continuities and Ruptures, while the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (+MSUM), challenges the ideas of contemporaneity and displays a selection of works from the international collection Arteast 2000+ and the national collections of the Moderna galerija The Present and Presence, dating from 1960 on and focusing on different notions of time. Both venues present also temporary exhibitions and host related public programmes . The new name of the two units is an abbreviated form MG+MSUM standing for Moderna galerija / Museum of Modern Art  plus Muzej sodobne umetnosti Metelkova / Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova . The curators' offices are on both venues, the photo archive is situated at the Moderna galerija, while the other departments such as the archives, the library, a publications and a conservation-renovation departments are situated at the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova.
