European Night of Museums | Trade Exchange

For its second participation in the European Night of Museums, the Bourse de Commerce — Pinault Collection inaugurated in May 2021, welcomes visitors for an exceptional free night from 7 p.m. to midnight. With family and friends, this Saturday May 13 will be an opportunity to discover the architecture of the monument and the “Before the storm” exhibition.

Free access to the exhibitions and to the building, by reservation.

Come and discover the history and architecture of the Bourse de Commerce: seen from the outside, drawing a perfect circle, unique in the Parisian landscape, the Bourse de Commerce is an “architectural UFO”. Embark on an amazing journey through the building’s five centuries of history and architectural transformations. Discover its great restored decorations, its preserved vestiges, in dialogue with the radical and meditative intervention of the contemporary architect Tadao Ando.

Take a stroll through the “Before the Storm” exhibition: did you think there were only four seasons? Fifteen artists from the Collection reinvent ecosystems and upset the perception of the world around us. In the concrete architecture of the Bourse de Commerce, they reveal new landscapes and bring nature inside the museum. Paintings, videos, installations… before the storm breaks, experience art anew.

The program

Throughout your visit, mediators-speakers answer your questions. They offer you introductory points of view and insights inviting you to take a better look at the works and not to miss any of the beauties and key elements of the building.
