In Paris, temporary exhibitions at museums and monuments offer essential moments of discovery and cultural enrichment. The offering is varied with: contemporary design, more classic works and unusual installations and performances.
Exhibitions are an integral part of cultural life in Paris. Whether they be held at major museums, such as the Pompidou Centre, the Louis Vuitton Foundation and the Louvre Museum; at monuments such as the Panthéon, the Versailles Estate or the Grande Arche de La Défense, or are even, free of charge, outdoors at La Villette and on the railings of the Luxembourg Gardens or City Hall, exhibitions are always eagerly-anticipated events!
The city puts free exhibitions on outdoors too: the railings of the Luxembourg Gardens, the Champs-Elysées, the Seine riverbanks and the Champ de Mars are sometimes the backdrop for unusual works of sculpture and objects during exhibitions that are as surprising as the city itself.
Around Beaubourg and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and also over towards Belleville, Parisian art galleries also show exhibitions that are popular with fans of contemporary, classic, primitive and exotic art, and painting, photography, sculpture, etc.
