Very much an embryonic institution, the MSUI doesn’t yet have a permanent collection on display but it does mount superb exhibitions by current artists in the cavernous, crumbling halls of an old printing house, mid-way between the amphitheatre and the Old Town. Be sure to ask about the bizarre, cocoon-like sellotape installation on the building’s top floor, designed by Zagreb-based Numen/For Use in September 2010 and left in situ – it’s not always open to visitors but can be viewed on request.
