The Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris has chosen to retrace the career of the Dutch painter and sculptor Karel Appel, around ten years after his death.  Known for being the co-founder of the group CoBrA, the artist places himself far from the norms in a spontaneous and experimental exhibition, full of vitality, which focuses on the naïve and primitive forms of art. This exhibition highlights twenty-one of his creations: paintings, ceramic sculptures, major illustrations, etc.

Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris

Opened in 1961, the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (or MaM) is situated in the east wing of the Palais de Tokyo, a monumental building with sober decor, just a short walk from the Eiffel Tower. The museum is devoted to contemporary art in all its forms: paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and video. The museum's permanent collections, with more than 8,000 works of art, show the diverse art trends of the 20th century: cubism, Ecole de Paris, abstract art, new realism, etc. The museum houses works by Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, Georges Braque and Yves Klein. In parallel to these permanent collections, large temporary exhibitions are organized. A cafeteria and bookshop are some of the additional services offered by the museum.
