ABANDONED TO ART GALLERY
In its heyday, Paris nightclub Les Bains-Douche played host to raucous parties with the likes of Kate Moss, Andy Warhol, and David Bowie but since the space was condemned due to structural insecurity in 2010 it has sat unused and blocked from the public. However in the past few months, a team of over 50 street artists and a group of photographers to document it all have breathed new life into the nightclub.
The former 19th century municipal bathhouse is scheduled to be demolished in several days but in the meantime the Magda Danysz Gallery has curated “Un Jour, Un Artiste”, treating the building as a temporary art gallery.
