The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis is an art museum for contemporary art, located in St. Louis, Missouri. It is often referred to as CAM St. Louis

The institution that would become CAM was established in 1980, and operated under a number of names including First Street Forum and the Forum for Contemporary Art. On September 19, 2003, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis moved to the new building, designed by architect Brad Cloepfil, in the Grand Center Arts and Entertainment District in midtown St. Louis.[1]

The museum has mounted more than 120 exhibitions and exhibited over 260 artists. It usually shows six Main Gallery exhibitions each year of American and international artists. It has exhibited work by Richard Aldrich, Laylah Ali, Lutz Bacher, Rosa Barba, Leslie Hewitt, Hayv Kahraman, Elad Lassry, Marilyn Minter, Gedi Sibony, Carey Young, Richard Artschwager, Jim Hodges, Sean Landers, Cindy Sherman, Arcangelo Sassolino, and Amy Sherald.
