Palais de Tokyo in Paris presents the exhibition 'Inside' with works from more than thirty artists from all around the world. Visitors will find in Inside a passage to the interior of the self, in 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.

metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
2014—Uneven Growth: Tactical Urbanisms for Expanding Megacities, a 14-month initiative to examine new architectural possibilities that address the rapid and uneven growth of six global metropolises — Hong Kong, Istanbul, Lagos, Mumbai, New York, and Rio de Janeiro — culminates in an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art from November 22, 2014 , through May 10, 2015 .
