CAAC is the acronym for Andalusian Contemporary Arts Center or Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo. The Center is located at the Monasterio de la Cartuja (the Carthusian Monastery) which was founded in the year 1400.

When some monasteries were sold in mid-19th century, Charles Pickman, an English businessman, purchased the Cartuja and converted it into an internationally renowned pottery factory. When Seville was chosen to hold the Universal Exhibition of 1992, the Monastery was restored for use as a cultural center.
