The first ever Paris exhibition dedicated to urban art.
From April 22-24 the Carreau du Temple presents Paris’s first ever international exhibition dedicated to urban art, inviting around 30 galleries from around the world to display the works of up-and-coming young artists. All 3000 square metres of the iconic 3rd arrondissement cultural space will be taken over by urban art forms like tagging, calligraphy and vandal art, inviting the visitor to explore a side of the art world that’s usually under-represented inside the city’s museums (after all, is something still ‘urban’ once it’s in an art gallery?). The programme also includes performances, projections and conferences by experts in the field.
