Finally – the Bourse de commerce has unveiled its new website with all the information we were waiting for about the venue, exhibition spaces, entrance cost, membership card with tons of advantages…
There’s just one thing they haven’t told us yet…
We told you recently about the exciting new Bourse de commerce exhibition space (read our article here), but some info still hadn’t been confirmed, and the website was still the temporary one all about the renovation work. But that’s all changed now!
We finally know, for example, that the venue has ten exhibition spaces with themed shows planned featuring works from the collection of François Pinault – 10.000 works from nearly 350 artists! – as well as other exhibitions dedicated to artists who feature in the collection (with other special projects and cartes blanches planned too).
There’s also an auditorium for concerts and events (conferences, film showings…) and what’s called ‘the Studio’ for audio pieces, video works and other undefinable projects.
One slightly disappointing piece of news is that the first three days of opening, which were free, are already booked up. You can however book your tickets for the following days on this page.
Admission for adults is 14€, and concessions cost 10€ (for 18-26 year-olds, students, the unemployed…). Free entrance (booking still necessary) is offered for under 18s, people on benefits and others. More info here.
Interestingly, the first Saturday of every month offers special late-night opening and is free for everyone from 5-9pm! And if you’re planning on going with friends, there’s a special rate available – 50€ for 5 people entering together.
The Bourse de commerce also has a kind of membership scheme called The Circle. 18-26 year-olds can join the Super Circle for free, giving them free entrance any day after 4pm (or entrance for 7€ before 4pm) and other perks. You can sign up here.
For adults, the Solo or Duo Circle (35€ for one person or 60€ for two) is valid one year, and gives you loads of advantages: a welcome gift (fridge magnet perhaps?), free priority entrance, invites to private exhibition openings, meetings with curators during private visits, reductions at the bookshop and the store of the restaurant, free access to the Pinault Collection in Venice…
The only piece of info still missing seems to be… what’s going to be on show! Apparently, this will be unveiled on Monday 17th May, just a few days before the space opens. Looking forward to it!
