Exhibition of giants in the park of La Villette

Date From to
Exposition de géants dans le parc de La Villette

The Parc de La Villette welcomes giant inflatable plastic or textile works made by international artists: monkey, octopus, flowers, robot, boat... These giants will surprise you at the bend of an alley of the Parc de la Villette.

Inflatable art is back in 2022 at La Villette: the Pop Air exhibition and its giant inflatable works are waiting for you in the Great Hall! An outdoor tour is proposed this summer with the festival Paris l'été.

Inflatable works in contemporary art

Inflatable structures are increasingly used by contemporary artists: Koontz, Nikki de Saint-Phalle, Yayoi Kusama and many others have used these easily transportable structures.
