Palais de Tokyo

Palais de Tokyo

Map
13 Avenue du Président-Wilson, Paris, 75116, France

Le Palais de Tokyo is not a Japanese palace but an experimental gallery space for avant garde artists. Housed inside the west wing of a 1937 Art Deco building (the east wing holds the Musée d’Art Moderne), Le Palais only showcases temporary exhibits. The vast interior looks industrial with exposed ceilings, bare columns, and fluorescent lighting. Still, the exhibits here are some of the most creative around, including Olaf Breuning's 2011 exhibit, Art Freaks, which involves 15 banners suspended from the ceiling, each with an image of person whose body is painted in the style of an artist like Vincent Van Gogh or Andy Warhol.
