Museum of Contemporary Art
A look at what today's artists are doing in a variety of disciplines.
Art that's cutting-edge and international.
Marseille is one of the world's top tier centers of contemporary art, and the city artistic ferment and cultural cross-pollination reaches its maximum expression here at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC). So if you're a fan of the avant garde, you'll definitely want to put this on your list. The collection starts from the Neorrealism of the 1950s and continues right up to the present, including photography, sculpture, painting, graphic art, installations, and performance art from the likes of Michelangelo Pistoletto, Gilles, Barbier, Ben Tinguely, and Gabriel Orozco. The museum is located on Avenue Haifa, open Tuesday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; the entrance fee is 4 euros.
