Art 42: the first museum of urban art in France

Art 42, which opened at the end of 2016, is the first museum of urban art (street art and post-graffiti) in France. It is within 42, the school of computing created by Xavier Niel, that this free museum opened its doors, on a space of 4 000m2. The enthusiasts or just the curious can thus discover 150 works of 50 internationally recognized artists. All the presented creations are from the collection of Nicolas Laugero Lasserre, accomplished collector who has been passionate about urban design for fifteen years. Thus, you will find on the spot the "space invaders" of the Parisian artist INVADER, the avatars made on the traffic signs by the Breton street artist Clet, or even, "l’Homme en blanc" (the Man in white) imagined by Jérôme Mesnager. But that's not all, it is also the opportunity to admire black and white photographs by JR, the portraits of C215, the committed works of Banksy, and the very colored and geometrical works were by Okuda. A unique place to discover with your family.

Open on Tuesday from 7p.m. to 9p.m., and on Saturday from 11a.m. to 3 p.m.
Free entrance.
