Credac, Ivry-sur-Seine’s center for art, first opened its doors in 1987 in the Jeanne Hachette Center, taking over a venue that was originally designed to be a cinema. Today the center has found a new home in an old factory complex, the Manufacture des Œillets. This remarkable building, emblematic of Ivry’s industrial activity in the last century, was acquired by the city in 2010 and is slated to become a public cultural venue soon.
Crédac is a place for exhibitions, production and experimentation dedicated to contemporary artistic creation. Throughout the year, Crédac presents exhibitions dedicated to one or more artists, emerging or established, French or foreign, underlining the diversity of contemporary artistic practices: painting, photography, video, sound, graphics, sculpture, installations, performance.
