THEATRE of the World, the hit exhibition by MONA and the TMAG, is travelling in Paris.

Hundreds of works from the show are going on display at a private gallery called La Maison Rouge in October.

It is the first time an exhibition from Australia is being mounted at the experimental gallery, which MONA senior curator Nicole Durling describes as the MONA of Europe.

"Eighty per cent of the exhibition will travel to Paris," she said. "It is a vast undertaking."

Premier Lara Giddings said the Paris show was "a huge coup" for the two Tasmanian museums.

TMAG director Bill Bleathman said exhibits such as the 70 precious examples of tapa cloth from the South Pacific would capture attention anywhere in the world.

Theatre of the World, curated by Jean-Hubert Martin, is the largest collaboration between a private and public museum in Australia.

It closes at MONA on April 8.
