Penone Versailles




From 11 June to 31 October 2013, the Palace of Versailles hosts the Italian artist Giuseppe Penone for a major exhibition of contemporary art, Penone Versailles, presented mostly in the French formal gardens and also in the Palace itself.

Positioning of the works

Most of the works of the exhibition Penone Versailles are presented in the French formal gardens. In front of the façade on the garden side, many of them are displayed in the Water parterre, or installed further along the Grand Perspective. A forest of works in the Star grove and several installations in the Palace complete the exhibition. Download the layout of the works [French]
