THE BLOCKBUSTER OF THE YEAR

JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT

The work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the most significant painters of the 20th century, is spread over four levels of Frank Gehry’s building.
The exhibition covers the painter’s whole career, from 1980 to 1988, focusing on 120 defining works.
At a young age, Jean-Michel Basquiat left school and made his first studio in the streets of New York. Very quickly, his painting achieved great success, which the artist both sought out and felt subjected to. His work refers back to the eruption of modernity, that of the expressionists, but his filiations are numerous.
Basquiat’s death in 1988 interrupted a very prolific body of work, carried out in under a decade, with over one thousand paintings and even more drawings.
Date: From 3 October 2018 to 14 January 2019

OPENING

L’ATELIER DES LUMIERES

If you’re seeking a new artistic thrill for your next Paris visit, then we’ve got good news: L’Atelier des Lumières, a new digital museum breaking ground in Paris’s buzzy 11th arrondissement, promises to be the coolest new destination this side of the Right Bank. L’Atelier des Lumières will inhabit the renovated remains of a 19th-century foundry on the Rue Saint-Maur, whose gritty, concrete-and-steel industrial bones—26-foot-high walls and over 21,000 square feet of open floor space—provide an ideal canvas for the museum's large-scale, projection-based exhibits. Using a state-of-the-art projection system, paintings, collages, and mosaics by the likes of Klimt, Bosch, Breugel, and Chagall will be digitized and cast onto the walls of the space, shrouding visitors in the shadow of swirling, golden trees, and the outlines of Bosch’s saints and sinners. Exhibits will be accompanied by an original soundtrack, composed to fit, and complement, each body of work.

Opening hours: From 10:00 am to 6:00 pm / Nocturnes ven-sam jusqu’à 22h

STREET ART

LASCO PROJECT

Underneath the Palais de Tokyo art center is one of the best-kept secrets of street art in Paris. The center started the Lasco project in 2012 to showcase urban art in the building’s subterranean passages, corridors, and stairways—a part of the center until then undisclosed to the public.
The Lasco project is an underground wonderland of murals and art pieces by some of the most renowned street artists from around the world. The dark corridors are filled with a diverse mix of graffiti and art pieces, giving off a mysterious and secretive vibe that feels like you’re entering a concealed universe in the shape of a street art maze.
Where: Palais de Tokyo, 13, avenue du Président Wilson - 75116 Paris 16
Opening hours : Open from noon to midnight every day except Tuesday.
