Exhibitions

The exhibition of the pictures created during the workshops is an important aspect of Clichés Urbains' action. They pursue a double objective : document the major urban mutation of this historical popular neighborhood, and contribute to a better appreciation of its cultural richness, by its inhabitants and the general public.

Our exhbition catalog is available here.
