Notice to street art lovers, the Hôtel de Ville de Paris is unveiling its new free event exhibition, named: Capitale(s): 60 years of urban art in Paris. An exceptional exhibition, to be discovered from October 15, 2022 to February 11, 2023, and which invites us to discover the works of more than 70 artists ranging from Banksy to Miss Tic, via Invider, Swoom or even Seth.
The street art exhibitions are multiplying in Paris, for our greatest pleasure. After the Tuileries Tunnel transformed into an open gallery, Urban Week at La Défense and the crazy exhibition by Jef Aérosol looming on the horizon, now the Paris City Hall unveils its next exhibition event, named: Capital(s): 60 years of urban art in Paris.
From October 15, 2022 to February 11, 2023, a large-scale exhibition is offered to us in the Salle Saint-Jean de l’Paris City Hall. Imagine an exhibition that includes the works of more than 70 street-artists famous and less known: Miss Tic, bando, Futura, Andrew, Banksy, invade, Swoon…
We will discover their creations from prestigious collections, but also archival documentsof the live interventions and achievements outside the walls throughout Paris, which will allow us to learn more about the history of Parisian street-art, which is sometimes overlooked.
I have to say that urban art embodies the freedom of expression for decades and allows a renewed awareness of major societal issues. If this movement has found its full recognition in the pen of journalists and in its reception in museum collections, urban art does indeed have its origins in the street and continues to express itself there on walls and other supports. urban.
Paris played an essential role in the emergence of this movement which is too often reduced to its North American origins. Through this beautiful exhibition, the City of Paris also highlights the new artists who perpetuate its vitality in the public space.
In short, it’s time to take out your diary and take note of this exhibition, which has the advantage of being free bonus.
