Even with the exit of many Parisians looking for hotter summer breaks, August in Paris is not only animated by the beaches on the banks of the Seine, but also by an audience that after several months of closing was finally able to return to museums and cultural spaces in the capital.
To receive them, there are Portuguese-speaking artists with various manifestations. At Fluctuart, a boat on the Seine, next to the Invalides, you will find the exhibition "TRACE", a monograph by Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto, known as Vhils. Opened in the summer of 2019 and being the only boat in the world dedicated to showing ‘street art’, the artistic direction of Fluctuart chose the Portuguese artist for the moment of reopening after several months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic in France.
"It's an artist I know and that I collect. He's very young, but he's a star of 'street art'. He's an artist who is in the top 10 of this art movement. He came with his team to install the exhibition here and he liked the place a lot," said Nicolas Laugero Lasserre, co-founder of the space and artistic director of Fluctuart, in statements to Lusa agency.
