Art by the water... Fluctuart, floating urban center near the Invalides, is finally opening after four years of waiting and works. An opening planned for June 2019 and that managed to become real thanks to the “Réinventer La Seine” call for proposals launched by the Mairie de Paris.
"We can't wait to meet our visitors again and keep on sharing our passion for urban art and one of the most beautiful rooftops in Paris, while respecting the health measures" director (and creator) Nicolas Laugero-Lasserre explained in a release. Starting June 2 at noon, visitors can come over again and disocver - or rediscover - works by the greatest international street artists exhibited permanently : Banksy, Invader, Keith Haring, JR and even Speedy Graffito...
Good news that comes in pairs, Fluctuart also reopends its rooftop, an open-air terrace to enjoy a drink and a beautiful sunset on the Seine and "incredible views on the Grand Palais, Trocadéro and even the Eiffel Tower". Perfect to bring a toast with sunny days... Yet, this reopening will happen with the stricter respect of health measures: hand sanitizer available, mandatory facemask, maximum 10 people per table on the rooftop and minimum distance of one meter between each group... Everything has been thought up to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Please note the Veni, Vidi, Vinci exhibition has been extended to June 21. The occasion to discover many works created as a tribute to genius Leonardo Da Vinci and celebrate the 500th anniversay of his death.
Supported by Géraud Boursin, Nicolas Laugero Lasserre and Eric Philippon, conceived by Seine Design and in partnership with Artistik Rezo, Fluctuart is entirely devoted to urban art on 1000sqm and three stories! Free and open to all and all year long, this art center will bring together the greatest street artists. The public will be invited to discover artists from different backgrounds, from the Grand Palais, from France or from all over the world, no matter they are young emerging artists, historical pioneers like Futura 2000 or world-famous artists such as Shepard Fairy and Invader.
Both urban museum and cultural platform 2.0., platform and residence for young talents, Fluctuart will offer a rich and varied program:
The concept of this floating building is a genuine challenge. Fluctuart wishes to offer a solution totally modular spanning three stories, 40-m long and 11,40-m wide.
