The Palais de Tokyo Contemporary Art Museum which opened with the Paris National Museum of Modern Art in 2001. This is where all the works change every season including all the collection.

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.


Paldal Tokyo has enjoyed tremendous popularity among young artists and Parisians with its performance, environmental art, and installation arts. It is also an ideal place to finish all your schedule and spend your evening time exploring modern art .


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 and the exhibition.



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



 At Palais de Tokyo This event is held at the basement level, where you can meet at the castle where you can find coffee, beer and snacks. But it is also an exhibition space where you can explore the installation works of Martin Soto Climent, a Mexican artist.



After a short walk through the cafe, you will arrive at Mika Rottenberg's video art, plastic art, and environment art showrooms. 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.


As artists point out the five senses of the body, it is possible to find many more interesting elements if they do not only visual and auditory but also the smell of the exhibition space where the film is being screened and proceeding to the exhibition.



This year 's exhibition was held  in response to a year - long exchange program. If you concentrate on the sound of the opera song that resonates solemnly, you can feel as if the sound of the opera Garnier of Paris rushes into the work space of Kim Aoyoung in the drainpipe making it an unforgettable expereince.
