- The modern façade of the Institut d'Art Contemporain (the Institute of Modern Art) disguises the fact that it has been housed in an old school in Villeurbanne since 1997 when the Nouveau Musée merged with the Fonds Régional d'Art Contemporain (Regional Arts Foundation). In this museum you can discover and keep track of what is happening in the world of modern art. It has a good choice of well-known artists (Buren, Dubuffet, Warhol, Weiner) as well as some young talent. Various exhibitions are held from time to time. The Institute organizes conferences, educational activities and informative courses for all. The bookshop is a good source of information about modern art. Check website for more information.
