The intimate surroundings of the Trianon will be the setting for the Palace of Versailles’ 12th exhibition of modern art. Versailles – Visible/Invisible leads us as if through the antique darkroom of five photographers: Dove Allouche, Nan Goldin, Martin Parr, Eric Poitevin and Viviane Sassen, who will unveil works they have created specially to resonate with the chosen setting.

This exhibition showcases their original and often surprising perspectives on not only the palace’s most well-known spaces, but also its hidden gems. The works will reveal a new Versailles, between design and heritage.
