Capitale(s) - 60 ans d'art urbain à Paris

Magda Danysz, 2022
More than seventy French and international artists, hundreds of photos of archives and works, exclusive interviews...

With a rich past, Paris embodies the history of art in progress, the one that is written before our eyes, in the streets. Indeed, for more than six decades, a visual revolution has been underway. It disturbs, questions, surprises and appeals to its visitors. The French capital has played an extremely important role in the rise of the now global urban art movement: from the pioneers of stencil art to the boom of graffiti, from the dark years of repression to public commissions, through the development of new techniques and the perpetual arrival of new talents...
Highly documented with images, Capitale(s) covers sixty years of uninterrupted dialogue between the city and urban art in all its forms of expression. The book highlights the formal diversity of a prolific artistic production carried by artists from all over the world, attracted to the City of Light, which has become, over time, one of the major and perennial capitals of urban art.
