DOWNTOWN PARIS EXHIBITION
In 2013, the festival and CBS Outdoor worked together for the third consecutive year to offer a new exhibition in the Parisian public space, using CBS Outdoor’s advertising panels.
For the third edition, there was two weeks display campaign from 17 to 30 June 2013! The choice to organize our outdoor festival in a Parisian garden, was born including the desire to show, to hear, and to share works of art in a public space.
