I'd say this place was one of the most impressive places in Paris during my trip. That's not because of the great exhibitions there, but because of the place itself. I feel kinda jealous of having this open place in Paris for everyone to enjoy not only modern art but also just relaxing atmosphere in the Palais de Tokyo. Actually I don't quite remember what kind of exhibitions were being held at the time becuz I think I was too busy to just look around the whole places.
When I saw the pic of Basquiat outside of the building, I was expecting there would be his exhibition, but there wasn't :(......
There were several rooms for video exhibitions and each room seemed to be decorated in a certain concept maybe..... and all of them offered so comfortable chairs and nest-like atmosphere so that people could appreciate the videos.
From the evening, I could see the lightening Eiffel Tower at the back side of the building, which was so romantic even alone:)/ One more thing that I was so impressed with was if you are a student studying art or design, there will be no entrance fee for the most exhibits, and also for most of the museums or galleries in Paris, which is a really good advantage of studying art!! Now, at the point of posting this, I started wondering why the name of this place includes the city name, Tokyo?! and then I found out that's becuz 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 and the name Palais de Tokyo derives from the name of this street.
