Actually called the 'Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume' if you please, this grand but squat building set in the Tuileries Gardens, close to the Place de la Concorde and opposite the Orangerie is now an exhibition space for contemporary photography.
The building dates from 1861 when it was used for the precursor of tennis, called “jeu de paume” as it was initially played with one's palm rather than a raquet. 50 years later the running of the building became loosely attached to the Louvre, and until the opening of the Musée d'Orsay just across the river it exposed mostly impressionist works.
Entirely renovated at the beginning of the 1990s, it is now dedicated exclusively to photography and video exhibitions, with a sister site in the Marais area – the Hôtel de Sully – for more historical work.
Many big names have exposed recently, such as Cindy Sherman and Pierre & Gilles, and a large Martin Parr retrospective is planned for summer 2009.
