From 2006-2012, Wahler was the director of the Palais de Tokyo, one of the most frequently visited contemporary art centers in Europe.
Wahler is known for creating museums with strong identities and exhibition programs that encourage dialogues between artists of different generations and also break down barriers between high and low culture and different artistic mediums (such as architecture, fine arts, dance, literature, theater, and music).
As director, he consolidated Palais de Tokyo’s strategic, administrative, and artistic structures, increased the institution’s presence on both the national and international art scene, doubled its fundraising revenue, and oversaw a major expansion project launched in 2008 and concluded in 2012. Under his leadership, the art center developed a new economic model, including the artists’ projects of a rooftop hotel and restaurant, as well as the Tokyo Art Club where members sponsored the production of exhibited artworks.
