Vibrant, bold, and pioneering, Palais de Tokyo is the dynamic place for the artists of our time and a one-of-a-kind exhibition space.
Located between the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Elysées, rich in unique architecture and an exciting history, Palais de Tokyo invites you on a journey through artistic creation.
A rebellious wasteland with the air of a Palace, an anti-museum in permanent transformation, Palais de Tokyo has kept Paris full of life and on its toes since 2002. At once convivial and challenging, generous and cutting edge, inviting and radical, poetic and transgressive, it is a space to learn, to experience, to feel, and to live.
Having become Europe’s largest contemporary art center in 2012 following the renovation of its entire space, Palais de Tokyo invites visitors to explore the emergence and meet the creators of our time, in the very place where some of the greatest artists of the past century were exhibited.
