Out of a general concern for transmission and in order to broaden and maintain the adult and individual public at the Institut, the public service department offers regular events: from the discovery of the site to active participation, through various specialised encounters (artists, guest speakers and so on). Our goal is to guide the public’s access, through various forms of mediation, in the understanding and appreciation of our artistic programmes. In a broad sense, the public service department encourages the reception of contemporary art and all the fields of thought and discussion that it generates (aesthetic, art history, anthropology, the art market, etc.) by the widest audience possible.


Beyond the traditional guides – visitor’s guide and young visitor’s guide – available at the IAC’s reception and on this page, the IAC offers different types of outreach,
responding to the diversity of its visitors and its artists.


Free with admission ticket.
General interest guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays at 3 pm.


In line with the themes of each exhibition project, these visits feature redefined outreach modalities to address and experience the artworks differently.
These visits are currently being tested in the form of "Postures à l’oeuvre" visits, a visit which allows you to discover how to come into contact with artworks by putting your body into action. One Saturday per exhibition, 3:00 pm.


Guided tours in French sign language, 
one Saturday per exhibition, 2:00 pm.


Adapted visits for a young public to view the exhibition as a family and share an afternoon snack.

Rendez-vous Satellites

With the events Rendez-vous satellites, the lnstitut d'art contemporain explores other forms of creation that induce temporalities and spaces other than those of exhibitions: inter-made moments (focus on a work or on news: Marc Desgrandchamps meets Bertrand Burgalat, 2007; Table d'Hôtes: Albrecht.D., 2008; Performances: Boxon, 2008-2009); screenings/experimental cinema cycle (cinéma Dada,... 2007; FIicker,...2008) or critical and theoretical lectures (2008: the seminar Fabricateurs d’ espaces by Arnauld Pierre).

IAC Friends

The IAC Friends is a non-profit association open to all those interested in becoming part of a network of art lovers and professionals, joining the great Contemporary Art adventure and contributing on an informal basis to the lAC's overall project. Its role also includes support for the artistic programme, extending public outreach and promoting the IAC at regional, national and international level.
