A contemporary "temple" facing the ancient Temple, Carré d'Art Jean Bousquet was designed by the famous architect Lord Norman Foster. It houses libraries, a media library, a museum and a documentation centre, like the Pompidou Centre.
With nearly 500 works, the collection forms a panorama of contemporary art since the 1960s.
The permanent collection on the first level groups the artistic movements that started in the South of France or Europe. Its constitution was based on the representation of movements, such as le Nouveau Réalisme, Supports - Surfaces and la Figuration Libre.
