If The New Yorker (the famous US magazine) were set in Paris, it would be called: The Parisianer.
Launched in 2013, the project of imaginary magazine The Parisianer has become a huge success since its first exhibition at the Cité Internationale des Arts and its very creative covers framing Paris in the elegant style of the iconic American magazine, drawn by a hundred talented artists (Charline Collette, Charlotte Trounce, Laurent Kling and more).
A second exhibition in 2014 at Paris Hôtel de Ville confirmed the growing success of the artistic (and funny) project.
For 4 months until January 2016, 31 (old and new) fictional covers reporting on Paris of The Parisianer are displayed for free at Bercy-Village, in East Paris.
The covers have been displayed around four themes: “I Love Paris“, “It’s 5am, Paris wakes up” (the original title “Il est 5 heures, Paris s’éveille” is actually a famous French song by Jacques Dutronc), “Paris is so tiny for people who love each other so much“, “Paris is a party“.
