The Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art

01.jpg -

The Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art (CAAC) was founded in 1990 with the intention to enhance Andalusia with an institution to investigate, conserve, promote and diffuse international contemporary art in its diverse concepts of expression. Next to the creation of a permanent collection of contemporary art, which evolves over the time, the CAAC conducts a program of activities with a clearly educational character (temporary exhibitions, seminars, workshops, concerts, meetings, recitals, movie screenings and conferences).

In 1997 the Carthusian Monastery became the headquarters of the CAAC. The Monastery was declared an historical and artistic monument in 1964 and a Monumental Site in 1989. It served as the Royal Pavilion during the World Exposition of 1992, and at present it houses the headquarters the Instituto Andaluz de Patrimonio Histórico or IAPH (the Andalusian Institute of Historical Heritage) and the Universidad Internacional de Andalucía or UNIA (International University of Andalusia).
