Quantcast

An ephemeral cabinet of curiosities in the Marais

Un Cabinet De Curiosites Ephemere Dans Le Marais

Arty happening, exhibition, naughty games, zany installation, here is a sample of curiosities to discover until Sunday at l’Imprimerie, the stylish spot in the Marais. An offbeat event, organized to celebrate the 110 years of the Foire de Paris, that is setting forth an occasion for an incursion outside its walls.

The really playful venue offers a retrospective of finds unveiled over the years during this historical fair. Major innovations that have created a revolution in our daily life (such as the ball point pen) as well as small ridicool gadgets including more or less useful inventions.

We like: the updated chronological frieze by graffer/tatooer Franck Pellegrino, the document aired on vintage TV, the duck fishing game for adults and other amazing installations…

Foire de Paris fait le mur, until Sunday 23 March, free entrance
