Just east of the 20ème, over the périphérique (because a wall just isn’t good enough) lie the suburbs of Montreuil and Bagnolet, a region that has become affordable hot spot for young French artists and all things bohemian.
So it’s no surprise to see the recent announcement that the long time street art community in Bagnolet, collectif Dizzidence Artistique has, with the help of the city of Bagnolet, invested in a new space called Le 115.
Situated at 115, rue Sadi Carnot, Le 115 hopes to offer "one of the most important concerns for an artists : a place to create and develop their projects. Neither a theatre nor a gallery, nor a concert room, Le 115 is an open space for any kind of urban art, with free access for the public."
The public space isn’t open yet, but the collective is hard at work getting things ready for September and the rentrée.
