Fancy a wander around Parisian Museum tomorrow?Â Well now you can, Prada is staging a very limited – 24 hours limited – exhibition in Paris called the “24 h Museum”, an ephemeral museum conceived by Francesco Vezzoli in collaboration with AMO, the kaleidoscopic off-shoot of the OMA/Rem Koolhaas architecture studio. “24 h Museum” will open on January 24 – for 24 hours only – at the historical Parisian Palais d\’IÃ©na, designed by Auguste Perret between 1936 and 1946, currently the house of the French Conseil Ã‰conomique, Social et Environnemental.
AMO’s installation for the “24 h Museum“ is divided in three sections, each inspired by a particular type of museum space: historic, contemporary and forgotten. The three sections are instrument to the sequence of events that take place during 24 hours in different areas of the ground floor of the Palais d’IÃ©na. The central space is a large metal cage made from grills and neon lights that encloses the work by Francesco Vezzoli.
The “24 h Museum” opens on Tuesday 24 January (Paris time) with an invitation-only dinner. At 11.00 pm it is turned into a disco-club and will be visible online at the site www.24hoursmuseum.com. The next day it is open to the public. So that means we can ‘wander’ around the museum from 2am tomorrow our time (I think) for about 12 hours before it closes.
