Situated in the bustling heart of Paris just a two minute walk from the Louvre, 59 Rivoli is a six floor, 19th century repurposed bank building packed with artist studios. Founded as an artists’ squat in 1999, 59 Rivoli was “legalized” in 2006 and restored by the municipal government. The ex-squat reopened in 2009 with 20 ateliers for permanent artists and another 10 for temporary residencies that last 3 to 6 months. All of the studios are open for visitors and the ground floor gallery space hosts free musical events most weekends. If you can’t make it in person, at least your can take a virtual visit right here.

If you’re interested in visiting some similar artists’ squats-collectives, check-out les frigos and la generale.
