More than ever, the Seine has become the essential place to be in Paris. Adding to the many barges and riverside terraces offering wonderful atmosphere and great views, the Ville de Paris has just opened a truly innovative floating urban art centre.
Fluctuart; a vibrant street art showcase
Fluctuart is not exactly a gallery, a museum, or a showroom. It's more than any of those. With its magnificent glass sides offering clear views of both the river and the waterfront, this floating space is a platform where contemporary artists can express themselves, where those who are passionate about art or are simply curious are welcome, where cutting-edge but convivial evenings are held. With Fluctuart, the various strands of street art from its beginnings to the innovations of today each find a place in an art space of more than 1,000 m² that is expressive, adaptable and vibrant.
The Fluctuart experience
One of the goals of the Fluctuart project is to help everyone to take ownership of art and provide a space for the expression of every facet of urban creativity. Take a quick look at the current exhibitions such as Time Capsule by Swoon, stroll through the speciality bookstore or discover a new DJ at a party while nibbling on the delicacies provided by the on-board eatery. Art fairs, workshops and residencies are also on the artistic agenda. Check out the programme if you want to know what to expect, or just wander along and be surprised!
Opened just recently, this pioneering urban art centre has already become an undeniable success and proves that contemporary art can be accessible to all. The Roch Hotel & Spa team recommends that you take a look as soon as possible.
