An amazing pre-demolition art gallery in Paris

Jump to last reply

The "Tour Paris 13" along the quai d'Austerlitz (metro Quai de la Gare) is one of those 1960's style apartment blocks that has outlived all utility and is scheduled to be demolished at the end of the year.

However, it has been taken over by street artists (with the blessing of the authorities) for a temporary operation making it the largest display of street art ever seen at one location. All ten floors and even the basement were carefully prepared over several months, in total secrecy.

The building opened to the public on October 1st and will close forever on October 31st. It is all completely free, but you have to pay with your person -- waiting time is in all cases more than 5 hours to get in, because only 49 people can be in the building at any one time and it takes at least an hour to visit all of the floors.

Well, I paid my dues yesterday, and here is my report: http://tinyurl.com/ocm9u5u
