THE MO.CO. places to discover

An innovative space

A bit of history

The MO.CO. Montpellier Contemporain is an ecosystem dedicated to contemporary art.

It is an artistic ecosystem that goes from training to collection, through production, exhibition and mediation, by bringing together an art school and two contemporary art centres.

It includes the following institutions:

  • The MO.CO. Panacée , a first-class contemporary art centre
  • The MO.CO. Esba (Montpellier School of Fine Arts)
  • The MO.CO. an exhibition space of 3500 m2 near the Saint Roch train station, open since 2019

Open to its territory, popular and resolutely innovative, the MO.CO. Montpellier Contemporain reinforces the natural cultural attractiveness of Montpellier Méditerranée, making the city a stronghold of contemporary art and an international cultural destination.

Focus on... The Garden of the 5 continents

The MO.CO. houses the Garden of the Five Continents, an atlas garden designed by Bertrand Lavier.

The artist worked on a garden in the shape of a world map, composed of plant species from all over the world.

An emblematic watering can fountain, also designed by the artist, is integrated into the centre of this planted atlas.
