Travelling exhibitions

Travelling exhibitions

The temporary exhibitions at the Philharmonie de Paris combine artworks, musical instruments, costumes, and interactive elements, offering visitors an immersive journey into the world of music.

They draw from a variety of approaches, all visual and poetic, including the consecration of iconic musical figures, dialogue between music and other arts, and exploring the great movements and periods in musical history.

Firmly committed to vibrant exchange with other institutions, the Philharmonie de Paris both hosts projects created by partners, and circulates its own exhibitions to museums abroad. As home to one of the world’s finest collections of musical instruments, and recognised for its extensive museum, music, and audio-visual expertise, the Philharmonie is a valued international partner.

Various formats are available for circulation:

Immersive installations and multimedia exhibitions can be set up in all types of spaces, e.g., media libraries, cultural centres, concert halls, etc., in France and abroad.
