150 pieces will soon be gathered in a unique area of 4000 m² to form the first free and permanent street art museum in France, at the heart of 42, the computer science school founded by Xavier Niel in Paris. It will open during the Nuit Blanche 2016.

Paris: France’s first street art museum opens soon!
42, the computer science school founded by Xavier Niel, Vice-President of the parent company of Free, will become a hybrid place hosting the first permanent exhibit of street art in France with the project art 42.

By presenting a collection of urban art in such an unusual place as the 42, Nicolas Laugero Lasserre, a collector and lover of street art, wished to create a bridge between the two worlds of the street and museum.

“Urban art conveys a universal message that often stimulates to rethink society and the essential values for humanity.

For already ten years, urban art took ownership of the world’s biggest museum: the street. This shows that art doesn’t only emerge from the top classes of society, but also from the bottom.

The project art 42 has the intention of making this art accessible to a wider audience, since there still isn’t a permanent exhibit in France, in order to increase its visibility,”
explains Nicolas Laugero Lasserre.
