Fluctuart; urban art bobbing gently on the river
Published on 15 July 2019, dans Visit Paris
Situated on the Seine is Fluctuart, the world’s first floating urban art centre. Recently opened, this barge moored close to the Pont des Invalides is open 7 days a week from noon to midnight and admission is completely free. It’s a new and vital cultural space you should discover as soon as possible!
Fluctuart; less a museum, more a place of life
A space of some 1,000 m2 spread over three floors, Fluctuart is a vibrant platform for Street Art presented in both permanent and temporary exhibitions, offering artistic freedom in a fabulous setting. The fully glazed main deck houses the exhibits, a specialist bookshop and a bar. The rooftop area is a venue for events, parties and brunches while the hold hosts a springboard gallery highlighting young artists.
An urban art mis en Seine...
Take the opportunity to discover three major temporary exhibitions a year, monographic or collective, as well as travelling exhibitions helping to make art accessible to all. In addition to the three annual exhibitions, a permanent collection will present some fifteen works by big names in street art.
Swoon in the spotlight
Time Capsule, by the New York street artist Swoon, is the major exhibition currently in the Fluctuart spotlight and will remain so until September 22nd. A major figure in the street art movement for 20 years, Swoon’s collages of life-sized human figure portraits adorn the streets of Brooklyn, eloquently expressing the societal issues explored in her work.
A convivial place for a snack or drink
This cultural space located on a river barge is also a warm and friendly place to enjoy a Sunday brunch, relax with an aperitif or a cocktail, get a bite to eat or even dance and party. The menu offers appetising tapas in sea or land selections as you prefer, accompanied by a glass of wine.
