Palais de Tokyo Paris

The Palais de Tokyo in Paris, housed in a wing of a building made for the 1937 Word Exhibition located midway between the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Elisées, was opened in 2002 as a contemporary art gathering, experimenting, and promoting center, which its own creators define the “anti-museum par excellence”.

In 2012, after ten years of great success that made The Palais de Tokyo internationally acclaimed, the exhibition surface of the center has been enlarged from 8,000 to 22,000 square meters after an ambitious project designed by Lacaton et Vassal architects.
The offer of activities and services of the center is very complete: contemporary art exhibitions, lectures, film projections, and live performances; furthermore, the Pavillon Neuflize OBC (the creative lab of the PDT), is regularly inviting young artists to a residential program that is having a relevant success in fostering new art expressions.

The Palais de Tokyo also offers several “lifestyle” destinations including the famous Tokyo Eat restaurant and a bookshop open until midnight. Moreover the center, through projects such as Museum Education, acts as a bridge between art and the viewer by organizing guided tours, workshops, and information services open to all.
