Founded in 1987, CEAAC aims to develop contemporary art in the Grand Est Region, both by supporting creation and its promotion or dissemination.

Exhibitions have been held at the Art Centre since 1995. Pursuing an ideal of democratization and access to culture and art, the aspect of education and mediation constitutes an essential part of its activites.
The International Space diplays the works of foreign artists hosted in residency by CEAAC and artists from the Grand Est who were supported during their stay abroad.
Finally, the publication of exhibition catalogues and books published in the context of artistic installations outside the walls complete this work of awareness and dissemination. In addition, artistic installations throughout the region introduce the projects of various artists and contribute to wider the visibility of contemporary art.
