The Palais de Tokyo Contemporary Art Museum, opened with the Paris National Museum of Modern Art in 2001. The collections here change every season.

 The Palais de Tokyo (Palace of Tokyo) is a building dedicated to modern and contemporary art, located at 13 avenue du Président-Wilson, near the Trocadéro, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris.

Palais de Tokyo has gained tremendous popularity among young artists and Parisians with its performance, environmental art, and installation arts.

 

Also note that the Avenue du Président Wilson is not far from the Eiffel Tower and is well-situated on the Seine, so you can enjoy the night view of the Eiffel Tower from the terrace.

 

 

In fact, Palace Tokyo is by no means a small modern museum on the scale and quality of its exhibitions. Although there is no regular collection, it takes about two hours each time to see the special exhibit that changes every season.

The installation and environmental artworks that can be encountered during the exhibition are all part of the mise-en-scene that was already introduced in the artist's video art.

 

 

AYOUNG KIM
