MONUMENTA is a new contemporary art event providing leading international artists with the opportunity to engage with the great steel-and-glass nave of Paris's Grand Palais, through the creation of a series of totally new installations. Reflecting the extraordinary dynamism of the international contemporary art scene, MONUMENTA is a unique opportunity to discover the work of some of today's greatest living artists. This remarkable annual event will showcase, in alternate years, the work of French artists (or artists living in France) and artists from around the world.
