Our new favourite; Fluctuart
Published on 10 July 2019, dans Visit Paris
Paris has always had a special relationship with contemporary art. Although this passion was less apparent in the last decades of the 20th century, the new millennium has opened with renewed energy. International fairs, the Fondation Louis Vuitton, the Pompidou Centre and countless private galleries bear witness to this. And now, a new level has been attained with the opening of Fluctuart!
Fluctuart; a space and a spirit
Born from a project launched by the Paris city authorities to ‘reinvent the Seine’, Fluctuart is the world’s first floating urban art centre. Moored at the Pont des Invalides, the barge’s three levels boast some 1,000 m² of gallery space, nearly all of which is lined with windows to let in plenty of natural light. There is also a rooftop terrace, a bar and a place to eat. Free and open to all, it will have a permanent exhibition of works by the biggest names in street art and provide a venue for various events, workshops, parties and temporary exhibitions.
The vitality of Fluctuart
The centre focuses on the urban art scene, from early street art to current creativity and completely reinvents the museum or gallery experience with verve and vitality. Admission is free, every day from noon to midnight. We advise consulting the agenda on the Fluctuart website as there is always something happening, from DJ sets to meetings and guided tours. Whether you just want to look around or spend the day there, Fluctuart proves that urban art is at the heart of our lives and is accessible to everyone.
The banks of the Seine are becoming infused with a new vitality, as proven by Fluctuart, the new favourite of your Hotel Passy Eiffel team. Enjoy a pleasant stroll from the hotel to this urban art centre on the river.
