Tokyo Palace

Painting, sculpture, design, fashion, video, cinema, literature, dance… Founded in 1999, this site presents all the trends of contemporary creation through numerous temporary exhibitions.

Since 2012, thanks to a vast renovation of the building, it has an additional 9,000 m2, including 5,500 m2 dedicated to exhibitions. This palace is located next to the Modern museum of art from Paris, both of them were built for the 1937 International Exhibition.

In the past it hosted the National Museum of Modern Art, before it moved to the Pompidou Centre, the National Contemporary Art Fund and the National Photography Centre. One, the “wild garden” was designed by landscape architects, the other is a set of pretty plots maintained by amateur gardeners.
