The Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo (CAAC) was created in February 1990 with the aim of giving the local community an institution for the research, conservation and promotion of contemporary art. Later the centre began to acquire the first works in its permanent collection of contemporary art.

The former Carthusian monastery became its home in 1997, a decisive moment in the museum’s history. It was also then that the Monument Zone of La Cartuja and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Seville, along with their respective collections, became part of the CAAC. Today it is a government agency under the aegisof Andalusia’s Regional Minister for Culture. The CAAC also acquired two new spaces in 2018: the C3A Centro de CreaciónContemporánea de Andalucía, the institution’s venue in the city of Córdoba, and the 15th Century Pavilion, a nearby building in the old charterhouse grounds mainly used to store and exhibit works from the collection.

From the outset, one of the main aims of the centre has been to develop a programme of activities attempting to promote the study of contemporary international artistic creation in all its facets. Temporary exhibitions, seminars, workshops, concerts, meetings, recitals, film cycles and lectures have been the communication tools used to fulfil this aim. 

The centre’s programme of cultural activities is complemented by a visit to the monastery itself, which houses an important part of our artistic and archaeological heritage, a product of our long history.
