Exploration of the Frigos : discovering unsual art in Paris
View date


The worshop of the Frigos, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, is an authentic place where the last vestiges of buildings from the industrial era still stand.

Once a key player in supplying the market at Les Halles in Paris, it is now home to many people from different backgrounds, all united by a passion for art: sculpture, dance, choir, publishing and small associations - the melting pot in this residence is impressive.

With your guide, explore this multi-faceted site, with its ancient architecture and important French political and artistic stakes.

Come and meet a regular artist, a world-renowned sculptor, who will take you on a tour of this unique space. He'll tell you all about his work, his motivations, his daily life at Les Frigos and the origins of the studio. 

On this tour, you'll be able to open doors that are usually closed to the public, where you'll find secret places like the hidden Frigos bar, where you can enjoy a refreshing drink. 

Your guide will also take you to the art gallery open to the public to visit the temporary exhibition. Immerse yourself in the workings of this famous yet little-known Parisian artists' town!

The Interkultur team is made up of professionals from a wide range of backgrounds, all with one aim in mind: to help you discover Paris and the Great Paris from a historical perspective. Small and large fascinating stories are passed on in order to perpetuate everyone's memory and explain the deep roots of France.
