Discover works of contemporary art on board Air France flights


Entertainment, innovation and surprises on board…Air France invites you to discover contemporary art on board its flights with a series of programmes available in the video-on-demand offer and in the contemporary art galley on board the A380.


Over the past few weeks, a new « Art » section in the in-flight entertainment offer has been available on all the airline’s long-haul flights. This artistic selection offers a choice of contemporary video creations to discover during the flight.


A contemporary art galley on board the A380  

On board its Airbus A380s, Air France offers an in-flight art gallery concept in partnership with the world’s leading art galleries and other cultural centres. Every month, Air France’s La Première and Business customers can discover arts exhibitions shown on three 38cm video screens in the gallery, situated on the upper deck of the aircraft. 


In 2011, the Air France gallery presented works by international artists:

  • a video exhibition by Benoît Broisat, called « Bonneville » (2004),  from the Museum of Modern Art in Paris,  
  • a selection of videos by Mark lewis, a Canadian artist who represented Canada at the Venice Biennale Art Festival in 2009, 
  • artistic portraits of personalities (Brad Pitt, Isabelle Huppert et Isabella Rossellini, etc.) by  Bob Wilson, a director who has worked for the most prestigious opera houses such as Metropolitan Opera and the Opera Bastille.
