Designed by architects Denise Huart and Jacques Ripault, MAC/VAL spreads over nearly 20,000m². The vast 5,000m² exhibit spaces of the museum allow visitors to embrace the essence of today’s contemporary creation. The MAC/VAL collection provides an overview of the French artistic creation from the 1950’s up until today, while temporary exhibitions are an opportunity to explore other fields of contemporary art.
Located in the downtown of Vitry-sur-Seine, MAC/VAL is surrounded by a minimalist public garden spanning over 10,000m² adorned with sculptures from the museum collection. It was designed by Gilles Vexlard, professor at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Paysage de Versailles.
