PARIS: ART 42


{twice a week becomes Art 42, France’s first museum devoted to street art, featuring 150 works from 50 artists, including Banksy, Shephard Fairey and JR.

Nicolas Laugero-Lasserre, 41, a longtime street art collector and the head of ICART, an art management school in Paris, reached out to the academy’s founders soon after it opened and offered his collection to be displayed (for free) throughout the school’s three floors. He estimates the art to be worth hundreds of thousands of euros.

The collection had already been the subject of some 40 public exhibitions in small to medium cultural institutions, galleries and fairs across the country before it took up residence in Ecole 42.} http://www.nytimes.com
