Throughout the night of 5th to 6th of October Paris becomes a big indoor and outdoor art exhibition. Artists,
painters, and musicians from all over the world show their works. Until 7 am the art lives on the banks of river Seine, of the canal Saint Martin, in the districts of Republique, Belleville, Menilmontant and of course, le Marais – a hub of art galleries and workshops.
Hundreds of people, Parisians and tourists wander through the streets, in awe of beautiful and unexpected art forms and witty installations that blend seriousness and humour. Parisians smile, laugh, chat… because any kind of event is just another opportunity for the French to gather and share: it’s the art of communicating!
