This section's Estimated Time of Procrastination is: 5' 

If you're visiting on the week-end, be prepared to queue for around 15min.

Outside the Palais is also lovely.

Curated by Jean de Loisy, Daria de Beauvais, Katell Jaffrès, the new exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris is a great opportunity to immerse in several different "insides" created by more than 20 artists using all sorts of techniques. From quiet and calming, to darker, disgusting, sticky, disturbing, alarming, claustrophobic, naughty, surprising, if something characterizes Inside is its capacity of being very moving and emotional. It is definitely a "risky voyage" as described by its curators.

In the Palais the Tokyo website we can read: "Inside offers visitors a passage to the interior of the self, for which the exhibition space serves as a metaphor. This immense odyssey, both physical and psychological, invites us to walk through two floors of the Palais de Tokyo that have been transformed by artists in such a way that, from one installation to the next, we remain constantly immersed in the works, which lead us within ourselves – from our skin to our most intimate thoughts."

The participan artists are: Jean-Michel ALBEROLA, Dove ALLOUCHE, Yuri ANCARANI, Sookoon ANG, Christophe BERDAGUER & Marie PEJUS, Christian BOLTANSKI, Peter BUGGENHOUT, Marc COUTURIER, Nathalie DJURBERG & Hans BERG, dran, Marcius GALAN, Ryan GANDER, Ion GRIGORESCU, HU Xiaoyuan, Eva JOSPIN, Jesper JUST, Mikhail KARIKIS & Uriel ORLOW, Mark MANDERS, Bruce NAUMAN, Mike NELSON, NUMEN/FOR USE, Abraham POINCHEVAL Araya RASDJARMREARNSOOK, Reynold REYNOLDS & Patrick JOLLEY, Ataru SATO, Stéphane THIDET (we loved this little cabin!), TUNGA, Andra URSUTA, Andro WEKUA, Valia FETISOV, Artur ZMIJEWSKI

The exhibition will remain inside the Palais of Tokyo (excellent view of the Tour Eiffel, btw) until the 11th of January. It will probably hold a little longer in your mind though! If your planning a Christmas trip to Paris you should definitely check it out!
