In the heart of the Loire castles region, the recent art centre endows the city of Tours with with a prestigious creative space of international reputation.
Its 4500m2 building, which owes its elegance to the light and spacious rooms, was designed by one of the most innovative architectural consultancy firm: the Aires Mateus agency. It comprises four exhibition spaces, an auditorium, a restaurant and a bookshop.
The centre provides a place for people to meet and share real artistic experiences. It is from that perspective that this season’s programmation is based on the dialogue between the work of Olivier Debré, major figure of the 20th century’s painting, and more recent visual art creations.
The CCC OD is supported by Europe, the French Ministry of Culture, the Conseil Régional du Centre-Val de Loire, the Conseil Départemental d’Indre-et-Loire, Tours Métropole Val de Loire and the Ville de Tours.
