A rich panorama
Through the creations of more than 70 artists – Invader, Miss Tic, André, Swoon or Banksy – the exhibition “CAPITALE(S)” draws up for the first time in France a rich and sharp panorama of this movement, and of the importance of the Parisian scene in its development over more than sixty years.

The incarnation of freedom
Between the incarnation of freedom of expression and societal awareness, a new generation of artists has taken over the public space, causing a real visual revolution. If its legitimacy has been deployed through the pens of journalists and within museums, urban art was indeed born in the street and it is the most important artistic movement of the 21st century.
Paris, one of the most important scenes of this movement
The history of art is on the march before our eyes, especially in Paris, one of the most important scenes of this movement. The City of Paris is taking up the subject and hosting, from October 15, in the Saint-Jean room of the Hôtel de Ville, a major exhibition on the history of urban art. Through the creations of more than 70 artists, works from prestigious collections, archival documents, in situ interventions, off-the-wall creations across the entire city, the exhibition “CAPITALE(S )” paints a rich and sharp panorama of this movement and the importance of the Parisian scene in its development over more than sixty years of history.
