Near Place de la Comédie and the Corum, Montpellier’s Pavillon Populaire is dedicated to contemporary photography. Launched by the city, this cultural venue is free of charge to the public. It hosts exhibitions specially designed for the occasion and presents established and emerging artists of national and international renown.
With art photography, documentary photography, fine arts photography and much more, the programme at the Pavillon Populaire honours the beauty and plurality of this artistic discipline. It focuses on retrospectives in particular. Monographic exhibitions are held regularly, presenting the works and evolution of a specific artist. Some of them have been dedicated to Robert Doisneau, Linda McCartney and Partrick Tosani among others.
This is the ideal place for anyone who wants to simply enjoy the good weather.
Lined with plane trees and greenery, it is perfect for a pleasant and energising walk.
If you stroll along the shaded walkways, you will find restaurants, cafés, guinguettes, musicians and florists etc.
