On the first Friday of every month, the Fondation presents special late-night events known as Late Hours, a chance to see and experience the building, exhibitions and works in a whole new way.


For the third straight year, April’s Late Hours event focuses on innovation, inviting the public to experiment with digital tools: prototypes of student-designed live games, virtual reality featuring Manet’s A Bar at the Folies Bergère, augmented reality in the galleries and an electronic music concert to close the evening.


Until 9.00 p.m.

FLV LAB – Be the first to try out exciting digital projects!




Space is limited

Find Frank Gehry’s stolen sketches, dismantle traps laid by a mad scientist, stop the revolt of a work of art. The students from the DSAA Graphic Design and Multimedia Storytelling Master’s programme at the Lycée Jacques Prévert in Boulogne lead you on an unparalleled experience of the building through four augmented-reality, live-game prototypes – all of their own design – installed at the Fondation.


9 p.m.



Swedish composer Axel Willner – aka The Field – opens the door to the electronic world. He takes us on a dreamy sonic adventure of minimal techno through loops resembling ambient music and Krautrock. He merges space and time in the Fondation Auditorium to immerse his audience in an atmospheric and technological landscape.


Until 10.30 p.m.



This virtual-reality experience is a time machine that propels you into the Folies Bergère in the late 19th century. Suzon, the enigmatic waitress who stars in Edouard Manet’s painting, is concealing mysteries that a dizzying waltz between the protagonists’ points of view will soon reveal.

Length: 5 min
