A Stunningly Successful Renovation!

The Palais de Tokyo opened its doors once again last April after a three month closure to the general public and a ten month extensive renovation programme. An impressive 20,000 m2 is now available for future exhibitions making the Palais de Tokyo the largest exhibition space in Europe for all displays of contemporary art.

To commemorate such an event in the Parisian calendar and in true celebration of young and talented artists the well-respected Triennale d’Art Contemporain, traditionally housed within the Grand Palais complex, decided to hold this prestigious event here this year.

Recently nominated President, Jean de Loisy, had this to say: “The Palais de Tokyo is now a gigantic and liberated space and as it has no permanent collection, it has no inherited or restricting infrastructure however its responsibility lies in creating something in and of the present and in translating the timeless and the diverse, the unusual and the unexpected into the now. ”

It goes without saying that this imposing building will fulfill its avant-garde calling splendidly – as it always has in its glorious past.
