Contemporary Art

Each year since 2008, Versailles hosts an exhibition of a major contemporary artist.

This creates facinating confrontation between major works by Jules Hardouin Mansart, André Lenôtre, Charles Lebrun, Jacques Ange Gabriel of the Baroque era and the contemporary vision of todays artists : Jeff Koons, Xavier Veilhan, Takashi Murakami, Bernard Venet, Joana Vasconselos, Giuseppe Penone, Lee Ufan et Anish Kapoor.

These encounters, sometimes emphasising contrast and synthesis, show Versailles as a living site always open to creativity.
