French Touch at the Museum of Arts décoratifs (decorative art)

At Hotel Mareuil, we simply love French electronic music, and we are conveniently located near one of the best spots for live concerts. From now and until March 31, 2013, the Museum of Arts décoratifs welcomes an exhibit dedicated to the French Touch. The term, created by DJ Laurent Garnier, refers to the young French scene from the 90’s, from which came electro music, associated with the graphic and esthetic aspects of video. Air, Cassius, or les Daft Punk, to name a few, have played an important part in this movement, and are now world renowned. The exhibit shows works of graphic designers like Hotspot, Alex Courtès or La Shampouineuse.
