Musée d'Art contemorain de Lyon
This museum opened on December 19th, 1995 on occasion of the Third Lyon Biennial presenting a new policy in France regarding the production of works of art. These productions emerged because artists where given a space in which to experiment and create works in harmony with their surroundings. Today, the collection has the largest number of installations never before assembled by a museum. Representing post-60s French and international creations, the collection takes up a space of 13,000 m2.
Palais de Tokyo
The Palais de Tokyo opened on January 21st, 2002, and one of its main aims is to house French and international exhibitions within an environment that encourages experimentation. The concept for this new contemporary art center is that of a museum as well as an art lab, since it does not have a permanent collection nor does it hold large-scale exhibitions for only one artist or theme.
Centre Pompidou
The Centre Pompidou, one of the most prestigious museums in France and the world, opened in February, 1977 under the former president of the République who wanted Paris to have a building to house modern and contemporary creations in all their expressions: sculptures, paintings, books, videos, films, music....
After twenty years and around 160 million visitors, the museum was remodeled in the year 2000 to offer the public a better organization of its collection adapted to current needs.
