Date of creation : 2006
Status : Public institution
Type of organisation : Institution - Museum
In charge : Clément Nouet, Directeur par intérim
Situated in the town of Sérignan, close to the Mediterranean Sea, the regional Museum of contemporary art is a must-see cultural and tourist attraction. There are temporary exhibitions and permanent collections amply accommodated in some 2,700 m² of floor space. The different areas of the museum offer visitors the chance to see a rich and varied range of exhibits in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Facilities include an exhibition room of graphic arts,exhibition areas, a video room, a reading room, a gift and bookshop. Activities are also organised throughout the year for different groups of people.

The museum is housed in an old winery and was inaugurated in September 2006. One area on the ground floor is dedicated to experimental works while upstairs, generously spacious exhibition rooms are bathed in natural light. There is a graphic art exhibition which is almost a museum in itself, presenting a collection of paper-based work in a softly-lit environment. Throughout the museum, the artist, Daniel Buren, has placed coloured panels in all the windows as part of his work entitled &#8220 ;Rotation&#8221 ;. This creates visual effects both inside and outside the building. There is also, &#8220 ;Les Femmes fatales&#8221 ;, a large ceramic fresco created by Erró which is exposed on the external walls of the museum. The bookshop stocks a large range of monographies, exhibition catalogues, books published by artists, first editions, theoretical essays as well as a range of DVD’s on contemporary art and design and architecture or on the work of specific artists. There is also a children’s area containing a unique selection of children’s books, educational games and toys to collect.
The exhibition collection at the Regional Museum of Contemporary Art of Languedoc Roussillon Midi Pyrénées comprises paintings, photographic images, sculptures and installations which offer visitors an insight into the most creative period for contemporary art during the 1960’s. Several extensive collections of work emphasise certain periods in the history of art such as Abstract Landscapes, Supports/Surfaces, Figurative and Narrative Art, Conceptual art, and the present day artistic scene. Once a year, the museum refreshes its exhibitions to highlight its latest acquisitions and offer new layouts to visitors.
