A nice building is staging a rather small exhibition. Comparing price/value from Cartier foundation and Louis Vuitton foundation the latter definetly win. So much more exciting and only 10 euro more expensive.

A Jean Nouvel building featuring an amazing tree in the entrance. We were there for the Malick Sidibe photo exhibition. Very interesting and a brilliant documentary to highlight Sidibe's photos and home country. Buying tickets online allows you to skip the line.
