Les Frigos, Paris

Artist Collective in an Massive Refrigeration Plant

 “The Paris-Ivry refrigeration station was born in 1921 . In the time of its splendor, the trains rushed into the body of the building. The many pipes, rust-ridden, that run along the corridors, testify that we were then in the heart of a giant refrigerator.”

Where Art Lives

Over 200 artists/ creators, each doing their thing, most every day. Street Artists, music artists, sculptors, painters, and more

Every inch of this enormous artistic-industrial citadel is covered with art.

The neighborhood along the Seine is rapidly being gentrified. Meanwhile the massive plant is aging.

La Maison Des Frigos Entrance

“A unique urban and cultural site created by ant work from an industrial wasteland, its character is not at all comparable to the official projects of the territorial communities.
A place of intensive passage, it was common to put tag’s and graph’s on previously abandoned surfaces. How will new residents and businesses in the neighborhood tackle this situation? What alliances will be tied with the newscultural and educational entities nearby?”
