A New Now

A New Now will be in Paris from September to December 2020. This colourful work which rises 8m in height has a double ambition: to encourage, with communicative joy, to build an 'after' to the Covid crisis and arouse, in a poetic and popular way, the imagination.

In 2019, the City of Paris organised a call for 'Embellishing Paris' projects in order to encourage initiatives to embellish small public spaces with works of art. In the heart of the city, next to the Pompidou Centre and Saint-Merry, a 16th century church, called 'Petite Notre-Dame', the 6M3 Collective was chosen for its innovative project: to erect a large pedestal in an abandoned square and invite there for a few months artists whose achievements we see little in France.
