Bordeaux Art Contemporain

Bordeaux Art Contemporain (B.A.C.) brings together more than forty structures involved in the production and dissemination of contemporary art in the Bordeaux metropolitan area: museums and public institutions, private organisations, art galleries, associative projects, artist run spaces, documentation centres, etc.

B.A.C. is conceived as a platform for exchange, cooperation, pooling and mutual aid between its members, in order to ensure the promotion of contemporary art and Bordeaux's
to the general public, the press, professionals, collectors and other networks in France and abroad.
