Beyond its flagship building on Place de la Concorde, Paris, Jeu de Paume has, since 2010, developed a partnership with the city of Tours for the presentation of exhibitions with a more historic resonance at the Château de Tours.
Since 2007 the Jeu de Paume has been working to expand its online activities, developing a dedicated “virtual space” with an innovative program of special web-based projects and thematic shows entrusted to curators specializing in the digital arts. Film programs are devised to accompany many of the exhibitions, or to pay tribute to major figures of the independent filmmaking scene in France and abroad. Specialized in documentary, essay, and autobiography, with an emphasis on previously unscreened work, the programming helps bring filmmakers together with artists.
All the activities at the Jeu de Paume are driven by a deep concern for interdisciplinarity in the study of visual culture and images, and by a quest for new meaning in all fields of thought. Talks, seminars, and symposia explore the questions and themes raised by the exhibitions, helping to open up new spaces for critical interaction.
Le magazine, an online publication launched in 2010, draws on a range of resources (video, photo gallery, audio and text files) to extend the debate to the use of images in the digital era. Le magazine is a unique platform for artistic content, in-depth articles, virtual tours, and portfolios. It is a web-based forum for dialogue between historians, philosophers, artists, curators, filmmakers, poets, and the art lovers.
