Inaugurated in 2005, the MAC/VAL, or Val-de-Marne Museum of Contemporary Art, is based in Vitry-sur-Seine town centre, close to Paris, and offers an overview of French artistic creation from the 1950s to the present day. Set in a beautiful white building with contemporary architecture that blends into the cityscape, the museum and its permanent collection house more than 2,000 works, with pieces by such renowned artists as Christian Boltanski, Pierre Soulages and Annette Messager. With a total area of 13,000 m², of which 4,000 m² is devoted to permanent and temporary exhibitions, the museum also hosts international artists in residence.
To help visitors discover the MAC/VAL and its exhibitions, guided tours and free audioguide tours are available, as well as workshops for children and families, and multi-sensory tours.
If you need a rest, feel free to stay awhile in the public garden that surrounds the museum or enjoy a meal at its pleasant restaurant!
