La Maison Rouge

La Maison Rouge 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.
