Bordeaux offers one of the richest collections of contemporary France
Created 40 years ago in a former colonial warehouse (Entrepôts Lainé), the CAPC focuses on emerging art forms. With a permanent exhibition of some 1,300 works by 190 artists (Robert Combas, Annette Messager, Mario Merz, Richard Long, etc.) the CAPC offers an in-depth look at a half-century of culture and features new forms of contemporary art that link this museum with a strong international movement.
The CAPC also schedules fascinating temporary exhibitions, lectures and discussions on art history, guided tours, and learning experiences for children.
House in a building imbued with history, the modern art museum offers a choice venue for the works it displays.
Whether you are a modern art enthusiast or simply someone who likes to admire all beautiful things, the CAPC is a must during your stay in Bordeaux!
