Event of the Week
Just when you thought the largest street art exhibition space was called "Paris", you find Tour Paris 13, proudly touting itself as "the largest ever collective exhibition of street art", bringing together 100 street artists in an almost defunct building that is destined to be demolished for a one-of-a-kind art exhibit.
