The Pantheon, just in front of the Hotel des Grands Hommes and the Hotel les Dames du Panthéon, has a new exhibition by street artist C215 (aka Christian Guémy), with stencil portraits shown not only in the monument but also to be found in the streets around it, using a map that you can download…
The new exhibition Illustres seems very interesting!
Artist C215 has created a series of portraits of the men and women whose remains are to be found in the Pantheon., and these are being shown in the crypt, together with an explanation of how the artist works, photos showing him installing one of his creations, and a video interview with him.
However, the more unusual part of the exhibition is to be found once you leave the monument, with 28 more portraits to find in the streets around the Panthéon.
The exhibition website allow you to download a map which gives you the location of each portrait together with information about the subject.
The exhibition is part of a whole season called ‘sur les murs‘ (on the walls), with nine national monuments taking part, including the Château de Vincennes with its current exhibition Histoire[s] de Graffiti.
If you go and see the C215 at the Pantheon, you’ll also be able to see a video installation by filmmaker David Teboul, which is being shown in the north transept until 16th September 2016.
And there are also a couple of months left to take advantage of the visit of the dome…
The exhibition Illustres ! C215 autour du Panthéon is at the Panthéon (here) and the neighbouring streets until 8th October 2018
Open every day from 10am-6.30pm (6pm starting 1st October)
Admission: 9€ / 7€ (includes entrance to the monument)
