Fluctuart, the world’s first floating urban art center in Paris opens

First floating urban center Fluctuart finally opens this June 2019 after 4 years of waiting. A new art spot set near the Pont des Invalides and open to all that managed to become real thanks to a call for proposals called "Réinventer La Seine"

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.

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:

  • A permanent exhibition of street art greatest names
  • A food service and bar
  • A springboard gallery in the hold
  • Cultural events such as urban art fairs
  • Artists’ residences in some of the units of the building
  • Cultural association Artistik Rezo’s premises
  • Creative and educational workshops for young people
  • A library with specialized books
  • Possibility to privatize the building for cultural or private events

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.
