  • Very interesting exhibition on the trees, beautiful drawings and a theme on deforestation that makes you think. In addition, the garden behind the building is very pleasant to drink at the small bar.

  • The exhibition reveals the plant intelligence, the sensitivity and memory of the trees and the final video of Stefano Mancuso completes to convince on the absolute need to allow them to save the planet , the vegetation of cities is one of the methods of Combating climate change, vegetated Paris would limit the discomfort of heat waves: 42.6 degrees on Thursday and probably water stress. The garden is a kind of tribute to Agnes Varda and the feline gent!

  • The building is nice with a garden and nice plant near by, but that’s not what I paid for. Great pieces inside, however I spent more time in their book store reading the book about the exhibition I paid for cause it has way more content than the exhibition itself. meh.
  • Beautiful exhibition of Latin American artists involving geometric designs. Nice building architecture itself, with different layouts in the ground floor and in the basement. The lighting in art pieces is well placed, often creating stronger contrast on the piece. The garden behind the building is cozy, great to chill in the afternoon.
