SPOT24: the Olympic exhibition you urgently need to discover

The new hybrid venue showcasing urban sport and culture … and Olympism!

SPOT24 - the Olympic Exhibition, Sport and Urban Cultures highlights the six new Olympic disciplines that will be represented at the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games. While BMX freestyle, skateboarding, sport climbing, surfing and 3x3 basketball were already present in Tokyo in 2020, they will be joined in 2024 by breaking.

Curated by François Gautret - curator of the “Hip-Hop 360” exhibition at the Philharmonie de Paris - “SPOT24 - l'Exposition Olympique, sport et cultures urbaines” focuses on these new sports and their links with urban cultures.


An exclusive Olympic event!

The SPOT24 exhibition showcases the new disciplines of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, each with its own dedicated area.

Visitors will find a breaking area with archive footage of this discipline's first steps at the Olympic Games, a climbing area with holds used in the Tokyo 2020 competition, a surfing area with boards signed by big names such as Kelly Slater, a corner dedicated to 3x3 basketball with the ball from the Tokyo 2020 final signed by all the players, a BMX area with bikes used in the biggest competitions and a skateboarding area with boards by famous skateboarders. All this in an exhibition trail dotted with emblematic objects from the disciplines and works by world-famous street artists created especially for the exhibition!

There's also a gaming zone dedicated to e-sport, with free access to vintage consoles for challenges, a space featuring hip-hop music and plenty of other surprises.

Don't miss: the Paris 2024 Olympic torch can be seen in the SPOT24 exhibition!

All the secrets of these new disciplines will be revealed through numerous works and archives from the collection of the Olympic Museum (Lausanne, Switzerland) and original creations. For the duration of the exhibition, a rich cultural program will be on offer for all ages: events, battles, sports initiations... as well as a competition featuring world-renowned artists and athletes!

SPOT24 is a partnership between Paris je t'aime - Office de Tourisme and the Olympic Museum (Lausanne, Switzerland).

SPOT24: flag of the Cultural Olympiad

SPOT24 has been awarded the “Cultural Olympiad” seal of approval by Paris 2024. This label makes the venue's programming part of the multidisciplinary program stretching from the end of the previous Games to the Paralympics. It weaves the links between art and sport, celebrating in particular the shared values of excellence, inclusion and cultural diversity. From summer 2022 to September 2024, numerous major events will come together under the umbrella of the “Cultural Olympiad” to forge even closer links between sport and culture.

SPOT24 can be privatized for professional events. Find out more here.
