Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by recordnerd on January 13, 2005

You've got to see it to believe it. A beautiful glass-and-steel building by Jean Nouvel, it sometimes seems invisible, with shifting panes and a cedar tree planted right in the middle of it all. Looking out into the garden, it's truly like being in an urban jungle. The museum itself aims to "support and foster awareness of contemporary art" by hosting rotating installations featuring the latest from artists such as Sarah Sze, Daido Moriyama, and Paul Virilio. Go on a Thursday night for a "nomad evening" and catch up on the trends of the moment.
