The Magasin is the National Center for Contemporary Art of Grenoble. The museum is installed in a former industrial site. Built in 1900 for the Exposition Universell of Paris, this steel structure was manufactured in the Eiffel workshops and then carry to Grenoble after demounting to the Bouchayet-Viallet site.
All year round, two temporary exhibitions are presented at the same time, both on different topics. They are distributed in two different spaces of the museum: la Rue (the street in french) which is the main space, directly under the steel dome of the old indutrial building and the Galeries, which are repainted and newly organized for every new exhibition.
