The MAMC (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art) is home to and shows off a collection of works from the 20th and 21st centuries and is a reference among French museums what with nearly 19,000 artworks.

In addition to the outstanding collection of modern and contemporary art is a substantial set of photographs and one of the rare reference collections in the field of design in France. Designed by architect Didier Guichard in 1987, the Museum has a 3,000 m² exhibition area based on a grid pattern, which is easily adjustable and benefits from natural overhead lighting.

A large part of the exhibition galleries is set aside to display a selection of works from the Museum’s collection, with the other galleries being devoted to temporary exhibitions of international importance (10 exhibitions a year with two series of exhibitions on average). The artwork on show is renewed on a regular basis to provide a glimpse of the extent of the collection.
