If you are interested in photography and photographers, le Jeu de Paume is probably one of the best place to see some amazing temporary exhibitions here in Paris. It hosts great events often never shown yet in Paris or France. If the exhibition is a gem, expect some queue to get inside ! A good tip is to come early in the morning and during the week rather than on weekends.Emmanuelle B,
The Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume is a museum of contemporary art in the Tuileries Gardens next to the Place de la Concorde in Paris.
The building was constructed in 1861 during the reign of Napoleon III. It originally housed real tennis courts; the name of this game in French is jeu de paume.
Between 1947 and 1986, it contained the Musée du Jeu de Paume, which held many important impressionist works now housed in the Musée d'Orsay. From 1989, as part of the Grands Projets of François Mitterrand, the building underwent a $10 million renovation by architect Antoine Stinco.
In 1991, the Jeu de Paume reopened as "France's first national gallery of contemporary art with subsequent retrospectives dedicated to international artists. But since 2004 the Jeu de Paume has developed into a centre for modern and postmodern photography and media.
Some of the best temporary exhibitions dedicated to photography medium are held here.
