AMAC - Galerie d'Art Contemporain de Chamalières is a hidden gem in the art world. Located in the picturesque town of Chamalières in Auvergne, France, this gallery is dedicated to showcasing artists of our time who are outside the official currents. Whether they are writers, painters, sculptors, photographers, or artists, they all share the qualities of expressiveness, sincerity, and artistic excellence. Founded in October 1984 with the support of the City of Chamalières, AMAC continues to thrive today thanks to the dedication of its artistic director, Slobo, a renowned painter. The gallery receives support from local officials, including the Mayor of Chamalières, Mr. Louis Giscard d'Estaing, and Deputy for Culture, Mr. Michel Proslier. One of the highlights of AMAC is the World of Print and the Original Engraving - Triennial Chamalières. Held every three years since 1989, this event has become internationally renowned in the art world. It brings together artists from all continents and showcases the most prestigious collections. Over the years, AMAC has worked with artists from over one hundred countries, making it a truly global platform for contemporary art. During the 9th Triennale in 2014, AMAC had the honor of presenting an exhibition of lithographs by the legendary artist Honoré Daumier. This event not only highlights the talent of established artists but also provides a platform for emerging artists to showcase their work. One unique aspect of the Triennial Chamalières is that each participating artist donates a work, creating a Cabinet Print that enriches the Contemporary Art collection in the city of Chamalières. This collection continues to grow with each edition of the Triennial, making it a valuable cultural asset for the town. If you're a lover of contemporary art, a visit to AMAC - Galerie d'Art Contemporain de Chamalières is a must. Immerse yourself in the expressive and sincere works of artists from around the world and witness the vibrant art scene that exists outside the mainstream currents.
