About the Museum


Founded in 1973 by Jena-Louis Froment, CAPC (Centre of Contemporary Visual Arts) is housed in a 19th century industrial warehouse and is now the foremost contemporary art museum in Bordeaux. It holds a permanent collection of over 1,200 works by leading international contemporary artists. There are seven site-specific works permanently on view throughout the building, by artists like Keith Haring, Christian Boltanski, and Richard Long. In addition to its permanent collection, the museum also organizes large temporary exhibitions on specific themes, including music, architecture, cinema, literature, and design. The museum often highlights artists who work in the Bordeaux region.
