LASCO PROJECT TOURS

Come and discover the Lasco Project, the amazing urban art journey behind the scenes of the Palais de Tokyo, in the company of a cultural mediator.

Nearly sixty international artists who inscribe the street in the history of art have thus carried out interventions, some monumental, others secret, which confront the raw architecture of the Palais de Tokyo and infiltrate its interstitial spaces (corridors, stairs, passages).

Friday 17, Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 September, at 7pm. Everyone. Free on reservation.
