Official description from Palais de Tokyo:
( translated by Google) The Palais de Tokyo is an art center dedicated since its opening to bring audiences the best of contemporary French and international art. Open from 12:00 to 0:00, with a team of mediators, housing a restaurant, gift shop and bookstore, the Palais de Tokyo is a place of life who does not hesitate to mix art and conceptual chainsaws, zombies and minimalism, readymade and mutants, to let people see contemporary art in a way now and uninhibited and, as often as possible in terms of artists themselves. It welcomes young artists in residence (The Pavilion), sometimes offering them their first monograph (Modules), or assigned by the Commission of some of its exhibitions to artists (Ugo Rondinone in 2007, Jeremy Deller to come). Plastic, open, polymorphic, the Palais de Tokyo is exposed also abroad (The Cottage).
Wikipedia excerpt:
The Palais de Tokyo is a building dedicated to modern and contemporary art, located at 13 avenue du Président-Wilson, near the Trocadéro, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. The eastern wing of the building belongs the City of Paris and hosts the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris). The western wing belongs to the French state and hosts since 2002, the Palais de Tokyo / Site de création contemporaine. The building is separated from the Seine river by the avenue de New-York, which was formerly named Quai Debilly and later Avenue de Tokio (from 1918 to 1945). The name Palais de Tokyo derives from the name of this street.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.

In the meantime, check out the Palais de Tokyo homepage or our exhibitions list for Paris-wide exhibits.
