Jeu de Paume Paris

1 place de la Concorde, jardin des Tuileries - 75001 Paris Louvre
Situated in the heart of Paris, in the Tuileries Gardens within a building dating back to 1862, the Jeu de Paume, a centre for art and international creation, has been a landmark site since 2004 for the presentation of images of the 20th and 21st centuries ranging from photography to cinema, and from video to installation and online creation. As a meeting point for artistic fields, the Jeu de Paume reflects on the place of images in art and society, both in terms of their production and their distribution and reception. Its varied and constantly renewed programme of exhibitions, film cycles, courses, meetings, educational activities, workshops and publications brings together established artists and new talent. Its varied and constantly renewed programme of exhibitions, film cycles, classes, meetings, educational activities, workshops and publications brings together established artists and new talent. It is a vibrant place where all kinds of people meet, and it also has an arthouse bookshop, the Rose Bakery café, whose terrace is one of the most beautiful in the Tuileries Gardens, with a breathtaking view of the majestic Place de la Concorde. A magical place where the sunsets are among the most beautiful in Paris with the Obelisk and the Eiffel Tower in view!
