Known for its pioneering role of the contemporary art and for significant exhibition in its extraordinary architecture, the CAPC museum of contemporary art of Bordeaux has a collection which collects the famous names of the current art, since the historic figures of the 70s to the artists of the new generation.
Because the CAPC was at the leading edge of the artistic avant-garde since it was created in 1973, the CAPC began very early to build up a collection, thanks to the narrow collaborations established with artists, often before they acquire a world fame. Some exhibitions in the nave of the Warehouse and some big monographs were the best example of these accompaniments.
Acquisitions continued and the last enrichments of its collection give it a historic continuity which was not revealed to the public yet.
Masterpieces work goes back over these excitement creative years, on the masterpieces which give personality to this collection and on the last works that complete these unique heritage.
A reference work for every amateur or collector of contemporary art.
