A liberal space where artists show their work and share their lives. This is the 59 Rivoli. Located at the heart of Paris, a 6-storey building, with free entry that hosts 30 artists of different forms of artistic expression, cultural events and concerts on weekends.

It all started with a simple formula: great intentions, will power and a lot of courage. That is what, in 1999, a trio of artists called the KGB (Kalex, Gaspard and Bruno) did when they occupied this building and called it ”Chez Robert, Electron Libre”. In 2006 the building was purchased by(…)

24 Hours Museum by Prada

24 Hours Museum by Prada 1

Exactly 24 hours, not a minute more, was what lasted the ephemeral “imaginary museum” by Prada, concept of the Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli, between January 24 and 25 at Palais d’Iena in Paris. A worship to the eternal allure of femininity, the museum was divided in 3 sections, historic, contemporary and forgotten each one inspired by a particular museum decor. In(…)
