Concierge.com's insider take:
After lying dormant for several years, this Art Moderne gallery burst back onto the scene under the edgy aegis of curators Nicolas Bourriaud and Jérôme Sans. They've reinvented the place as a sort of art incubator specializing in shows that might not otherwise get a look from the city's rather tradition-bound establishment. Stripped down to its functional gizzards in the idiom of the Centre Pompidou, the venue works a charm for installations, including video or sculpture shows, fashion events, and performances. The curators take particular pride in the links they've created to emerging art scenes in Asia, especially Beijing and Shanghai. Last but not least, the café here is a fun place to clock the young movers and shakers of the local art world.
Open noon to midnight. Closed Mondays.
