Artists in bath house

Urban art in Paris
The famous old bathhouse Les Bains (º1885) in the centre of Paris - where among others Marcel Proust liked to take his steam baths, and where later on when the bathhouse had transformed into a famous concert hall and fashion temple Basquiat, Joy Division, Warhol, Kate Moss, Prince and many more celebrities gave act of presence - is currently been refurbished to become once again a hybrid venue. Les Bains will resurrect in the summer of 2014, but meanwhile the building is been occupied by a challenging plethora of urban artists who use its walls as a giant canvas. Thus on the very walls which witnessed Proust & co, a new generation of international talents create an ephemeral artwork. Until 30th of April 2013 their work in progress is being unveiled exclusively on www.lesbains-paris.com
