Romanesque Art Centre Georges Duby

Issoire

Description

In the shade of the abbey church of Saint-Austremoine, the Romanesque art centre presents the remains of the former Benedictine abbey, the chapter house and temporary exhibitions.

The Romanesque Art Centre Georges Duby is located on the site of the former Benedictine abbey which, in the Middle Ages, adjoined the abbey church of Saint-Austremoine. The mission of the centre is to promote the knowledge and enhancement of the Romanesque heritage, with its reception, video, research, documentation and entertainment areas. Open from May to October, it presents temporary exhibitions and every summer, at the end of July, a Romanesque art festival is organised by the Terres Romanes d'Auvergne association. An international Romanesque art symposium is held each autumn to close the "Romanesque season".

Due to the disaster that occurred on January 5, 2019 on the Nicolas-Pomel building, the Centre d'art roman Georges-Duby, located below, is closed to the public. The exhibition "Fashion in the Middle Ages" initially planned for this summer will be presented during the 2020 season. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to your loyalty in the years to come.
