2 fabulous, mind blowing exhibitions at the same time!!

Amazing artists shown. The space could be a bit more sleek, the art showcased a bit better. Apart trom that, just a fabulous (new?) art organization in Paris. Yay.

We toured this museum one Sunday afternoon during our trip to Paris. It is a great facility with a wide range of artwork from artists around the world who are predominantly self-taught. The installations were fantastic and the facility was quite nice. There were films of the artists playing in a theater room which were very informative.

Wasn't mentioned in tourist lists but was in my lonely planet. Great find and an original presentation of exhibits with computer terminals providing information on them. Cafe has nice friendly ambience.

At the moment the contemporary art exhibition which can be found in "La Maison Rouge" in Paris is called "My Joburg". The atmosphere was very calm, as everyone is looking at the photographs and the art works. I really liked the exhibiton as it was a great way to explore the city of Johannesburg. Through all of the artists we... More

I've never been in this place, first of all it's simple to get there. This is a nice place in general, smaller than Le Grand Palais, the only thing I didn't really like was the last room. Maybe because it was in the basement and I felt a oppresive atmosphere. But it's just a detail. So I moved there to... More

You don't have much time, but you need to give your mind body and soul a moment of culture? My tip is the La Maison Rouge. It works for me.
