Besides the stunning white architecture by Jean Nouvel and its priceless art displays, visitors will now see bold and vibrant pink tents rising from the museum. That’s right, Salt Camp has set up camp at the iconic destination and is a must-see for both food and art lovers. Salt’s new campaign ‘The art has left the frame’ invites guests to experience works of art like never before while inviting them to think of some pretty interesting (and fun) questions. For more entertainment, there will be culturally inspired live performances that take place on an elevated stage. And of course, you can expect Salt’s delicious menu of savoury and sweet treats. The camp is only open until April 30, so go see it before it breaks camp.
