  • Most of the facilities are interest-free and are either childish coloring from the recycling center where the utensils and other items used. Provisional Adel abdessemed, and monumental installation titled Shams, is surprising but we do not understand its purpose and carry especially his ugliness and advertising and positive of all media communication. See if necessary to form an opinion.

  • During my visit, a young mother asked her daughter if the exhibition he liked. The girl replied "actually to make contemporary art, there no need to have talent, we take anything and it is exposed". The truth comes out of the mouths of children, as they say.

  • I've always had trouble with contemporary art, but I wanted to visit the biennale to not die idiot. What a mistake! I really had the impression taking visitors for pigeons (€16 the place). You there will not resume me in 2019.

  • Never forget that this place think that the animal torture is fine (look out for chicken burn alive / "printemps")
  • Pretty standard contemporary art museum housed in the incredible cité international in the 6th. Worth the visit for a stop in the park, a balade around the building, and perhaps lunch.
  • Interesting collection. Very inspiring to see lots of young visitors.
  • Good exhibition. But costly and limited food options.
  • Lovely space and contemporary art at its best
