The CAC building in Geneva.

The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève (CAC) is a contemporary art exhibition centre in Geneva, Switzerland, established in 1974.[1]

CAC was the first contemporary art institution in Suisse Romande (i.e. in French speaking Switzerland).[1] It has organized over 300 exhibitions and does not have a collection, but organizes temporary exhibitions and projects with regional and international artists.

In 2010, CAC took on the mission of the Centre pour l’Image Contemporaine (CIC), established in Geneva in 1985.[2] CIC was established to organize events and exhibitions of images using new technologies such as video, multimedia, and the Internet, as well as more traditional photography and film.
