The Center hosts various international and local, historical as well as art exhibitions.

Major exhibitions address topics connected to the Center’s own academic activities. Highlighting new and sometimes controversial issues, the Center hopes to increase awareness and inspire public discussion.

In 2008, the Center hosted an exhibition originally created in Berlin dealing with Lviv as a multicultural city (Lviv A World A Way).

The Center's second major exhibition, created by its own staff and additional researchers and designers from Lviv in 2009, is dedicated to the history of "Eros and Sexuality in the Twentieth Century" and shows a wide range of aspects, from the Erotic in art and science before 1900 to the problem of present-day human trafficking.

The Center strives to be innovative not only in terms of content, but also in its presentation by combining various media - texts, images, films and objects.

As an institution, which is also engaged in contemporary culture, the Center has hosted art exhibitions. It has staged its own art contest entitled "My Lviv," with young artists invited to find innovative and fresh approaches to their city. The Center also regularly takes part in the annually held Week of Contemporary Art.
