The first major event marking the reopening of the Palais de Tokyo in 2012, La Triennale offers a large panorama of contemporary art at the intersection of the French art scene and global sites of production. Beginning within the interiors of the expanded and refurbished Palais de Tokyo, La Triennale is set in a series of overlapping cartographies that shift from small-scale collaborations with emerging research, production, exhibition, and performance spaces in Paris and the surrounding suburb, to explorations of the critical valences between the near and far, between the edges of France and countries adjacent to and bordering them.

Okwui Enwezor serves as Artistic Director of La Triennale, with associate curators Mélanie Bouteloup, Abdellah Karoum, Émilie Renard and Claire Staebler.
