Created in 1984 in a wing of the Palais Saint-Pierre, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Lyon moved to the site of the Cité Internationale in 1995, a vast architectural complex which will then extend over more than a kilometer on the edge of the Parc de la Tête d'Or, in the 6th arrondissement of Lyon. Entrusted to the architect Renzo Piano, who designed the entire site, the museum retains, on the Park side, the facade of the atrium of the Palais de la Foire, designed by Charles Meysson in the 1920s. The 6,000 m2 building, entirely modified, presents, on several levels, modular spaces according to artistic projects and perfectly adapted to new forms of contemporary expression.
