January 22 / January 22 2013 - Artcurial
The Graffiti, Street Art, Urban Art scene... whatever the name you give it, never ceases to prove its legitimacy on the market of Contemporary Art. 2013 is a good year for the movement, with among others the exhibition Keith Haring - Political Line at the Modern Art Museum of the City of Paris and the 104, or In the entrails of the Secret Palais with Lek, Sowat, Dem 189 and many others at the Palais de Tokyo. Artcurial opened the year with the first auction sale of Contemporary Urban Art, on January 22, with total sales over one million. Let's see images on this amazing sale with the interview of Arnaud Oliveux.

November 28 / March 30 2013 - L'Adresse musée de la Poste
After "Paint BAL: mailboxes for Keith Haring," L'Adresse musée de la Poste offers for the second time, a group exhibition of artists from Street Art movement with: Banksy, C215, Dran, Invader, L'Atlas , Ludo, Miss.Tic, Rero, Shepard Fairey, Swoon and Vhils.
The choice of the curator, Céline Neveux, has focused on the movement that is closer to urban contemporary art than Graffiti, showing its main protagonists European and French. The exhibition begins with a brief history of the movement in France with artists such as Ernest Pignon-Ernest and Gerard Zlotykamien who never have made Graffiti and Blek Le Rat, Jef Aerosol and Jérôme Mesnager who unlike Americans pioneers are not from the hip hop culture. Giving to six of them a free creative space, they showcase both their intervention work in situ and their works called "commercial" exhibited and sold by art galleries. This confrontation highlights the aesthetic and plastic work of artists of this movement, far from simple vandalism.
If you want to make disappear your prejudices on this movement, you just have to go for a ride "Beyond Street Art" until March 30th.
