L’elac (l’espace lausannois d’art contemporain)
On June 28, 1997, the opening of l‘elac took place with the first exhibition of ECAL students’ diploma works in the heart of Lausanne – the Flon area. The l’elac came out to fill the lack of proper structures devoted to contemporary creation in this city. In October 2007, the elac moved to Renens/Lausanne into the ECAL’s walls.
With a surface of 550m2, this gallery became one of the largest ones belonging to a school and a prestigious showcase for contemporary art and design in our Canton. It is also an essential research tool to achieve the mandate granted to Art and Design universities.
