MACT/CACT Museum and Center of Contemporary Art in Canton Ticino

The CACT Center of Contemporary Art in Canton Ticino was established in 1994, whose mission is, basically, to organise contemporary art exhibitions and launch thematic publications. Since 1996 CACT membership cards offer free entries in several Swiss Museums and Contemporary Art Centers, included an Italian Museum, in order to spread out all over the national territory important information about Art and Culture in Switzerland. In 2009, the CACT transforms into MACT/CACT Museum and Center of Contemporary Art in Canton Ticino, whose focus is to increase a collection with deposits and loans from private art collectors.
