Opened in late 2008, Le Centquatre is a public art space in the gentrifying 19me arrondissement that has quickly become an important part of the city's contemporary art scene. It's a massive initiative, both in physical size and in ideology - this ex-home of Paris's undertakers has 200 young artists in residence who have opened their studios to the public. The center also hosts a slew of creative events such as film projections, club nights, and even classical concerts in addition to the permanent and temporary exhibitions.
It's also a great place to just chill and soak in the Parisian sun while sitting at one of its cafes. Tickets for the events can be purchased 45 minutes before the show at the ticket booth or online via Le Centquatre's website. You'll probably have to know a bit of French to navigate through the event descriptions, but you should get some idea from the photographs! The events are split into three categories - shows, concerts and nights, and visual arts.
Meeting point: By the ticket booth. To get to the art space, take the Metro to Riquet on the M7 Line.
Leaders, Le Centquatre is open from 12pm to 7pm Tuesday through Sunday. Please check the schedule of events in case you want to organize a Trabblr meet around something specific!
