Some absolutely fantastic shows on there at the moment, including a surprisingly brilliant David la Chappelle retrospective on the left bank and frankly the best andy warhol exhibition I've ever seen at the Grand Palais (http://www.rmn.fr/Le-grand-monde-d-Andy-Warhol) but tucked away in one of the derelict wings due for imminent restoration is the T.A.G. exhibition showcasing an international roster of graffiti artists including such names as Seen, Duster, Taki 183, toxic, doze green...the list goes on (and on.....more than 150 in total!).
The exhibition was curated by a French architect, Alain-Dominique Gallizia, and has been several years in the making, with artists completing a diptych of canvases of equal size and shape including some theme on 'love'.
Gallizia intends never to split up or sell the collection, but rather to continue adding to it over time and having it continually touring the world.
Interestingly there are no UK artists at this stage, with most of the artists from North America or France at this stage so I imagine that is something which will also expand over time.
This really is an exhibition you must see, if you book far enough in advance you can get a return Eurotunnel for >£150 and you could happily do it and back again to London in one day, including the Warhol exhibition. It is a unique and fantastic opportunity to view such a huge range of artists and styles in one place, not to mention in such a fantastic venue.
There is also a fantastic two inch thick colour book for 20 euros with one canvas to a page as well as a forward by Henry Chalfant which is well worth picking up.
For anyone who is unable to make the exhibition, fear not, I photographed every panel, which you can find here:
