Paris Events. Les Bains 2013 The New Art Scene. Bains Douches. Temporary artists residency and one website to see it all before it vanishes.
Since January 2013 the legendary place from the 80s Parisian nightlife, “Les Bains” welcomes the street art international golden class – including such as VHILS, C215, Space Invader … – who take over the 30,000 sq feet of this famous Haussmann Style building. Four months out of time to pay tribute to the artistic DNA of “Les Bains” before it goes for reconstruction.
The artists residency
Les Bains 2013: a new face for this place before the launch of renovations.
Jean-Pierre Marois, both historic owner and new host for this prestigious address’ future, invited curator and gallery owner Magda Danysz to organize an artists’ residency program, that includes about 40 international artists.
An ephemeral art project which will disappear on April 30: less than two months from now!
