Paris is now home to the world’s first floating art center, located on the Seine River at the Pont des Invalides bridge. Fluctuart, a three-story, 10,764-square-foot space dedicated to art and culture is free to visit and open year-round, every day from 12:00 PM until midnight.
The three levels include a rooftop with a bar and patio; the main deck with a bar, restaurant, patio, library, and permanent art collection featuring the work of well-known urban artists such as Banksy, Shepard Fairey, JR, Invader, Rammellzee, and Vhils; and the hold (below the main deck) with a patio and large exhibition space for temporary showings.
The center’s goal is to promote trends within the urban art world, featuring a diverse range of work from emerging artists, and will even host artist residencies. The space will serve as a venue for cultural events, creative workshops, and other special events for the local artistic community. Additionally, there are workshops for kids on the weekend, free tours of the art center daily, and brunch served every Sunday from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
