The Grand Palais is, indeed, grand. We went for the Frantisek Kupka exhibition which was so much more than we expected. An artist whose work spans post-impressionism to abstraction, the show is beautifully curated and takes advantage of the large rooms. The Palais, itself, like...More

I saw the exposition of Frantisek Kupka last week. If you are in Paris, I advise you to see it. Kupka is a complete artist. There are a lot of paintings that they are coming from private collections. It is difficult to see them anywhere...More

The building is beautiful and there's always interesting exhibitions going on here. We checked out the Artists and Robots show which was brilliant, well-curated and all the pieces were well-titled and described.

This is not a world class exhibit - a lot of it feels quite old fashioned and we have seen quite a bit of it before. Anything older than 5 years ago is ancient in AI and much of it was like a history lesson....More

The grand exhibition hall was not open when we visited which was disappointing. If you hope to see the building you will be disappointed as the Kupka exhibit is only in a small portion of the site, and a architectural uninteresting part as well. As...More
