Nudity isn’t new in the art world, but who knew the ones showing skin would someday be on the spectating end?

On Saturday, the Palais de Tokyo modern art museum switched up its dress code and hosted its first nudist tour, welcoming 161 naked visitors to appreciate its exhibits.

The tour was part of a collaboration with the Paris Naturists Association to help embolden the acceptance of clothes-free activities.

“The naturist’s way of life is to be naked,” said Julien Claude-Penegry, Communications Director of the association. “Culture is part of our daily life and this is a special opportunity.”

To ensure other guests weren’t exposed to a culture shock, the tour was conducted before the museum’s operating hours.

The one-off event would mark the first time a Parisian museum bares itself to a fully naked audience. France is home to about 2.6 million nudists, and the Paris Naturists Association boasts a relatively active community.
