First located in the Jeanne Hachette Centre, built by the architect Jean Renaudie, the Centre d'art contemporain d'Ivry-le Crédac has since moved to the 3rd floor of the "American" building of the Manufacture des Œillets, one of the jewels of Paris Region's industrial heritage. This brick and steel building, with its fully glazed facades, built in 1913 on the American model of the Daylight Factory, is one of the first examples of functionalism in France. The large brick and millstone hall and the guardian's pavilion are currently the two major witnesses of this first period of the Manufacture and of the changes in industrial architecture from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. These buildings are registered in the additional inventory of Historic Monuments.
Contemporary art on stage
Throughout the year, Crédac hosts exhibitions dedicated to one or more emerging or confirmed artists, French or foreign, reflecting the diversity of current practices: painting, photography, video, sound, graphics, sculpture, installation, performance…
