Star Wars saga comes to Paris for an incredible exhibition called “Les fans contre-attaquent” [The fans strike back]. This installation, also claimed the best exhibition of the year in Spain by a jury of Internet-users, is something you don’t want to miss and running from December 14, 2018 to March 10, 2019 in a brand-new Parisian venue: the Centre Expo Lafayette Drouot.
Its particularity? It’s been made, designed and created by a fan: Daniel Prada. Born in Madrid, this Spanish man is fond of science-fiction and started collecting objects of all kinds in his younger years. But during his teenage years, he feels attracted by the dark side. Since then, he entirely dedicates himself to the Star Wars universe.
As the press release reads, the exhibition “The Fans strike back” is for “other fans so that each lover of the famous saga could dive into the delights of this oh-so peculiar and enchanting universe”.
But, what will you see throughout the exhibition? “Unique pieces that have been made by fans from all over the world, incredible geniuses, talented craftsmen and women who built sculptures, models or recreated costumes that are genuine pieces of art.”
Among the exceptional pieces, fans can even admire a Stormtrooper samurai (winner of the cosplay contest held by the CIFIMAD in 2016), a life-size 5-m tall 1:1 Jabba the Hutt, the Emperor’s throne hall and even a life-size 3.90-m tall rancor without forgetting the life-size 1.80-m tall exploration droid. All in all, 600 pieces are displayed in this installation considered as the biggest private collection ever made in Europe.
Note that the “The Fans strike back” exhibition will also offer workshops, cosplay contests and conferences and animations of all kinds.
A word of advice: don’t wait and book your tickets to discover this incredible exhibition in Paris!
