Fodor's Review

One of the city's premier spaces for contemporary art, La Maison Rouge art foundation was established by former gallery owner Antoine de Galbert to fill a hole in the Parisian art world. Always edgy, often provocative, the foundation stages several temporary exhibitions each year in a cleverly renovated industrial space anchored by a central courtyard building that's painted bright red on the outside (hence the name). Past shows have included "Tous Cannibales,"

themed around cannibalism, and "Memories of the Future," a death-obsessed display featuring artists from Hieronymus Bosch to Damien Hirst. Check the website to see what's on. Stop by the Rose Bakery near the entrance: it's the latest Parisian outpost of the popular English café.
