A facility for creation, experimentation and research in contemporary art, the Institut d’art contemporain (IAC) holds exhibitions and meetings in situ, combined with the assembling of a collection of international exposure. It extends research through ex situ exhibitions, by showing its collection throughout the Rhône-Alpes region, in France and beyond.

IAC is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Communication (DRAC Rhône-Alpes), the Rhône-Alpes Region and the City of Villeurbanne.
