Jeu de Paume

1 Place de la Concorde - 75008 Paris

This museum, in the style of the Second Empire of France, is tucked away inside the the Tuileries Gardens. Within these conventional walls are actually first class pieces of contemporary art… Le Jeu de Paume was first built during the reign of Napoleon III, and inaugurated in 1862. It then served as a « jeu de paume » court (an ancester of tennis). It was devoted to art early, as it became a part of the Louvre in 1909, but it was not until 1991 that the building finally became the gallery dedicated to modern and contemporary art that it is today. The museum proudly displays everything from photography, cinema in all its forms, to video art … Among its nine rooms you find works able to attract a diverse audience, it has plenty to do – and to discover. The Jeu de Paume is emerging as major center of contemporary art, and among its exhibits are Godard’s film-tests and works of Vittorio De Seta.
