The Palais de la Porte Dorée is holding the 'Paris-London' exhibition, which recounts the evolution of music between these two cities from the 1960s to the 1980s. Immigration, urbanism, politics and society are interwoven to show the influence of music on society at that time. Photos, videos, posters, instruments, costumes and zines form an electric collection, composed of over 600 artworks coming from musicians' private collection, the Victoria and Albert Museum or productions by Jean-Paul Gaultier.

Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration

The Palais de la Porte Dorée (in the 12th arrondissement) is a classed historical monument, built for the Colonial Exposition of 1931. A symbol of the art deco style, it has housed a tropical aquarium since its creation and, since 2007, the Cité Nationale de l'Histoire de l'Immigration, which takes a fresh look at the history of France by showing the part that was played by immigrants in economical development, social evolution, and the cultural activities of the country.
The permanent exhibition, Repères, is available as an open visit with a free audio guide provided that allows you to follow an itinerary that brings together personal accounts of migrants, report extracts, and old and new works of art.
