In the winter of 2012, the owner of the “Les Bains” building  invited a curator to invent a show in the legendary building of the Parisian “Les Bains” nightclub.

Let’s get back in time, down the stairs, and have the club revive ! The show must go on…

Over the winter 50 legendary artists came to write their one page of the famous club’s history.

From key dates like the Joy Division live album in 1979 to today creativity has always found a stage in Les Bains.

Music, Art & Creativity NEVER dies.

A 4 months artistic residency where artists carefully selected by the gallery owner would be invited to take over this legendary location.

Yet the project had some constraints from the required utmost discretion the place being closed to the public since 2010 and, last but not least, the fact that each and every art piece created would have to be destroyed in the end.

The music never stop, the show must go on…

In the end : an amazing adventure, where all styles met, techniques battled and artist reunited in an ultimate tribute to “Les Bains”

with the participation of 50 artists from all around the world, representing all the street art generations, and whose only aim was to create masterpieces

as a final tribute to this legendary Paris night club, returning to its former glory.
