Centre for Contemporary Art

Museum

Presentation

The main objectives of the Contemporary Art Center are to support young creation, the dissemination of contemporary art and artistic education. It hosts exhibitions and artistic workshops all year round.
The CAC is located in the most beautiful mansion in the old town. Renovated in the 18th century during the reign of Louis XV, its construction pre-dates the 17th century.

Every year, its programme includes three exhibitions with the primary objective of supporting young creativity, the spread of contemporary art and artistic education, relying primarily on painting, drawing, illustration and the issue of the figure in present-day art.
The search for partnerships with intercommunal and regional cultural bodies, other art centres in France and Europe, and the meeting of disciplines and artists are at the centre of a synergy bringing creativity and sharing.
Numerous cultural actions complete the programme (internships, talks, debates...). Guided tours of the exhibitions can be booked.
