The 13th at its core
A new cultural event in Paris, District 13 finds its inspiration in the city’s 13th district, and more specifically the Tour Paris 13 – the largest ever collective Street Art exhibition with over 4,500 m2 of floor space, walls and ceilings – and Street Art 13 – a genuine open-air museum – both projects that are led by the Itinerrance gallery.

An international event
District 13 seeks to enhance the appeal of Paris in the art market and positions itself in line with other major events in the French capital that represent the movement, at the heart of the debate and future of contemporary art.
We are bringing on board the most prominent artists in the world here, in Paris, to demonstrate that this is the true centre of where things are happening.

- Mehdi Ben Cheikh, Galerie Itinerrance Director and District 13 Art Director

Drouot, a first for Street Art 
For the first time ever, Drouot will be hosting a fair dedicated to urban art – a movement that is undergoing a complete transformation and lies at the heart of the debate and future of contemporary art. Opened in 1852 in Paris, Hotel Drouot is the world’s largest auction house. Over the years, this institution has forged a place as a focal point for contemporary art. Works from the greatest names throughout the history of art, including Picasso, Matisse, Braque and Dalí, have been sold under the hammer of Drouot’s auctioneers. Today, this iconic address is carrying on its tradition of creativity and acting as a driving force on the international market. With this new cultural event, Drouot stands out once again as a key figure making history in the worlds of French and International Art by supporting the modern market and its practices.
By getting involved in the first District 13 Art Fair, Drouot is illustrating the vitality Paris brings to the international art market and its tradition as a ‘city of artists’ for contemporary creation
