The objectives of the CWAC

The Walloon Centre for Contemporary Art, La Châtaigneraie offers temporary exhibitions exploiting all the techniques of contemporary creation.
There is no permanent collection or gallery. The CWAC doesn't aim sell works of art but to share the love of Contemporary Art with a greater number of people.
La Chataigneraie collaborates with many other Belgian and foreign cultural institutions in order to extend as much as possible the networks of international artistic exchanges.


The Origins of the Chataigneraie

The CWAC was born from the idea of ​​dedicating a space to Contemporary Art.
The programmes are accessible but very carefully cosnidered and the disciplines addressed throughout the events are very eclectic.
The Centre  wants to be a place of promotion for young artists as well as a space for meetings and awareness of artistic creation.
Not to mention the program of a series of retrospectives of great artists who contributed to the history of art.
