Wednesday, 23 Sep 2020 Renaud, a « Putain d’expo ! » at the Cité de la Musique in the fall
For the first time, Renaud is being honored this fall in Paris with an exhibition called “Putain d’expo!”. It’s an entire retrospective that is dedicated to him. From October 16th 2020 until May 2nd 2021, the museum of the Cité de la Musique welcomes all of Renaud’s biggest fans to dive back into his incredible journey.
This exhibition is the perfect occasion for fans that love the singer’s songs or even for the younger generation who wants to discover the man who wrote “Mistral Gagnant” and who was often called the “annoying singer”.
The exhibition will transport the visitors into an initiatory path that in the shape of landscapes, between imaginary musical and lived stories. Visitors will discover Renaud from another angle, when he takes his first steps as a street artist, then as a singer in the coffee and concerts shops.
This “Putain d’expo!” allows us to uncover Renaud’s world with the famous musical fictions that he himself shaped. Finally, he was known to be an engaged artist and a citizen of the world. The exhibition sends us back to all of his commitments and his militancy for ecology.
