For all levels: A choice of two themes
- Architectural walking tour :
Accompanied by a Fondation guide, your class sets off to explore the building, the story of its construction and its relationship with the site, and the commissions executed in situ linked to the architecture. In the form of a leisurely stroll from gallery to gallery, taking in viewpoints and panoramas, the itinerary offers insights into the Fondation's ingenious and complex creative process. Although focused on the architectural project and the way it fits into the Jardin d’Acclimatation, the tour also presents a selection of the works of art on display to give visitors an insight into the Fondation's programmes.
Length: 90-minutes Tour.
- Art Discovery:
The Fondation boasts an exceptional collection of modern and contemporary works of art, which are regularly displayed between exhibitions.
The guides introduce visitors to the collection and a selection of works reflecting the key principles underpinning the collection. While chronology is important, the guides offer a different point of view, highlighting the artists' sensibilities and giving an overview of modern and contemporary art history.
Length: 90 minutes
From 11 April to 27 August 2018: "In Tune with the World. New selection from our Collection."
When booking, please do not hesitate to tell us about any specific requirements and wishes you may have. The reception staff and guides will do their best to cater to them and make your visit special.
