Prada launches 24 h Museum in Paris


Prada 24h Museum is a one-of-a-kind museum designed by Francesco Vezzoli with AMO that opens in Paris today for 24 hours only, till Wednesday 25 January in the Palais d’Alene. The ‘24h Museum’ is divided into three sections, each embracing a particular museum space- historical, contemporary, and forgotten. The central space is encased in a large metal cage made from grills and neon lights that features the work of FrancescoVezzoli. Simultaneously, the three sections conjure to create a “nonexisting museum” where he shows his personal tribute to the eternal allure of femininity through classical sculptures. A majestic sculpture of a female is placed at the top of the stairway, reinterpreted with a mysterious goddess’s features.


Through the 24h Museum, designer Francesco Vezzoli seeks to continue his exploration of reciprocal influences and boundary-breaking in the visual arts, cinema, and theatre that he has already worked upon earlier. It is an invitation-only dinner, and the place would be turned into a disco-club at 11.00 PM, which can be viewed on the site. It would be open to the public from 7.00 am to 12.00 pm and from 2.00 pm to 4.30 pm. The event would end on 25th January at 8.30 pm.
