It’s in an old Red-Cross training center that Antoine Robot and Philippe Reichsrath decided to invest the place to present « ZOO, the Art Show », their street-art exhibition. Directly inspired by the United-States, the « Art show » vocation is to look different than every single classic exhibition we could find in art galleries. The choice of the building is not harmless : It’s into the 6th district of Lyon, in one of the posh districts, that they decided to create their « urban jungle », to offer a real gap between the exhibition and the district in which it’s implanted.
Their intention is to spread street-art culture with the largest audience, and to prove that it’s not just botched graffitis.
From the 2nd of June till the 29th of July, about forty international artists will be exhibited in the 600m2 old building, before its rehabilitation at the end of summer.
But don’t worry : The organizers wish to renew the experience next year and then become a reference on the artistic scene of Lyon.
