It hosts exhibitions specially designed for the occasion and presents established and emerging artists of national and international renown.

It pays particular attention to retrospectives. Monographic exhibitions are regularly organised, presenting the works and evolution of an artist. Among them, some were dedicated to Robert Doisneau, Linda McCartney, Partick Tosani...
