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.

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, Parisian art galleries also show exhibitions that are popular with fans of contemporary, classic, primitive and exotic art, and painting, photography, sculpture, etc.

Here is a snapshot of the most eagerly-awaited exhibitions in Paris in 2018.
