Jeu de Paume

The Centre National de la Photographie moved into this site in 2005. The building, which once served as a tennis court, has been divided into two white, almost hangar-like galleries. It is not an intimate space, but it works well for showcase retrospectives. A video art and cinema suite in the basement shows new digital installation work, as well as feature-length films made by artists. There's also a sleek café and a decent bookshop.

The Jeu de Paume is a great gallery for championing photographers you may not have heard of before. They normally have three exhibitions going on at the same time (all included in the one entry price), and they're curated really well, with informative booklets in French and English located at the start of each exhibition. The bookshop is really impressive for quite a small gallery, and has a fantastic selection of arty magazines as well.
