Creative Review – Derelict nightclub reborn as secret street art gallery

Creative Review has a phenomenal story on a night club transformation called Les Bains. This building was originally a municipal bathhouse built in 1885 located in Paris.

From January this year, 50 renowned street artists have had the run of the building, turning it into a 3,000 square meter gallery, albeit one that is inaccessible to the public. Marois and gallery owner Magda Danysz invited artists including Futura, Space Invader and Sambre to use material drawn from the building – electricity, ripped-up floorboards, rubble and spray paint – to capture its former energy.
