Centre Pompidou and the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection have teamed up to offer a special two-part exhibition dedicated to US contemporary sculptor Charles Ray.

This is the only way to buy tickets for both exhibitions in one, allowing you to book open-dated tickets for the first-ever large exhibitions of Ray's work in France, designed in close collaboration between two of Paris' finest art museums.

Over a third of Charles Ray's sculpted works will be on show in Paris at the same time, allowing art-lovers to immerse themselves in his engaging, thought-provoking, and sometimes bizarre style. Highlighting Ray's classical and contemporary influences, both exhibitions include previously unknown sculptures by this famously unprolific artist.

Better still, these tickets grant you general access to both Centre Pompidou and the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection.

Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection

Restored and transformed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, the 18th-century Bourse de Commerce building is now the permanent home to Francois Pinault's lauded collection of contemporary work, which was assembled across 40 years.

The collection brings together the works of all generations of artists, with emerging talents and recognized names displayed side-by-side, and art from a wide range of cultures and origins on show.

Centre Pompidou

Right in the middle of Paris, the Centre Pompidou is best described as a building turned inside-out. Utilitarian features like plumbing, air vents, and cables form part of the external façade and it’s all rendered in see-through glass.

That sets the stage for the groundbreaking art inside. Start on the top floor and take in the various isms: Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism, all laid out chronologically over the course of the 20th century. Along the way, you’ll see works by Picasso, Man Ray, Chagall and many, many more.

Must sees in Paris

One of the world's largest and most authoritative museums, the Louvre's magnificent classical silhouette (and funky glass pyramid) are well-known attractions in the center of Paris. But as nice as the Louvre is from the outside, its real magic is in the inside. The Louvre's collection ranges from Mesopotamian, Egyptian, and Greek antiquities, with masterpieces by Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt. With 35,000 works of art (all created before 1848), it's a big, and worthwhile, commitment. The Louvre is one of Paris's Big Three museums; the other two are the Musée d'Orsay (with Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art from the years 1848-1914) and the Centre Pompidou (with 20th-century works created after 1914).

Housed in the stunning Beaux-Arts style Gare d'Orsay railway station, The Musée d'Orsay is home to significant and stunning works by painters including Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Van Gogh. It's widely considered to be one of the most culturally important museums in the world. Its entire collection is from the period 1848-1914, including many of the most significant Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings ever created. Chronologically, the works come after those of the neighboring Louvre, and before the collection of the nearby Pompidou Centre.

Europe's largest collection of modern and contemporary art (oh yes, there is a difference!) is housed in a building that was deemed to be architecturally daring in the 20th century. The building features plumbing and piping on the outside and Picasso and Pollock on the inside. And to top it all off, from the rooftop you'll find gorgeous views of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. The Centre Pompidou is one of Paris's 'Big Three' museums – the other two being the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay. The Louvre holds art and artifacts from up until 1848. The Musée d'Orsay contains the world's greatest collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, all produced between the years 1848-1914. The Centre Pompidou holds 20th and 21st-century works (created after 1914). Altogether, the three museums house a complete timeline of Western art history.
