Museum of Contemporary Art of Lyon

Avant-garde masterpieces

Located in the modern Cité International district, the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Lyon provides easy access to avant-garde art from around France, Europe and the world - not just in the usual areas of painting and sculpture but other forms of media as well - video, sound, and graphic design, to name just several. The building itself dates back to the 1930s, designed by Renzo Piano with one façade of red brick and another of glass - both are impressive. The permanent collection alternates with exciting temporary exhibitions, especially of "uninhibited" art created right onsite by both professional and amateur artists. Groundbreaking, daring, and unforgettable.
