Underground Street Art @Palais de Tokyo

The Palais de Tokyo is a huge exhibition center for contemporary art, open every day until midnight, except Tuesdays .

There is no permanent collection, let alone a most peculiar one: the Lasco Project, a set of street art creations located in the basement (so, literally underground street art!)  accessible to visitors only through a guided visit every day at 10pm (the one we recommend for the undefinable atmosphere), or on Sundays at 12pm. It takes about an hour and is included in the entry price. The guide is very knowledgeable and, as the groups are usually small, you can ask many questions (the tour is in French but the guide understands and speaks English).

Your first impression when entering the maze of this huge building basement is the privilege of discovering this historical yet hidden part. Then you go through the works one after the other, along technical corridors or bunker-like shelters. Most works are painted or engraved directly on the walls, by artists like Philippe Baudelocque, Stelios Faitakis, JR, Lek, Sowat and Dem189. For street art connoisseurs as well as newbies!
