Book / 2007 / CAPC, Bordeaux ; Féret - 5 Sens, Bordeaux


Known throughout the world for its outstanding architecture, the CAPC in Bordeaux has a vast collection bringing together the great names in contemporary art.


As a pioneer of the artistic avant-garde when it was founded in 1973, the CAPC very quickly put together a collection thanks to the close cooperation it enjoyed with artists hitherto unknown in France.  This catalogue describes the saga of the place, from its origins up to the present day, through the shows which have succeeded each other in the Main Nave.  This book presents the 100 most important works in its collection.  It is a reference work for any lover or collector of contemporary art.
