Still undergoing transformation, the Monnaie de Paris will open an evening event space to the public with Rob Pruitt’s Flea Market.

For this year’s Museum Night, the Monnaie de Paris will provide visitors with a playful meeting place, a space for creation and discovery, in advance of the opening of its impressive transformation project, MétaLmorphoses, in February 2013.

Whether well-known artists or revelations of the contemporary art scene, Rob Pruitt has brought together a wide range of his close friends to take part in this performance which promises to be once of the most rich and unexpected projects of Museum Night in Paris. At the heart of this unusual flea market, artists will present objects dear to them or which they have cobbled together, empty their closets, sell their masterpieces or create participative events.

For Museum Night, Rob Pruitt has designed an exceptional token, minted by the Monnaie de Paris in an edition of 3,000. The token will be on sale at the Flea Market.

Monnaie de Paris, a new cultural institution
As soon as it reopens, Monnaie de Paris will resume a cultural program of exhibitions and events focused on contemporary creation. The venue already presented projects from Henri Foucault (2008), Tadashi Kawamata (2008), David LaChapelle (2009), and Daniel Buren (2009 and 2010). Monnaie de Paris will also continue to participate in art world events (Mois de la Photo…) as well as collective operations (Museum Night, Nuit Blanche, etc.).
