Here's some text from Fandango Projects:


The exhibition was called "I WAS A TEENAGER IN THE..." an interactive installation aiming to tell the 40 year history of Quiksilver through the eyes of a teenager, nostalgia and time travel.

    Hi Jack. I think you are confusing Le Grand Palais with the Palais de Tokyo . Le Grand Palais is one of the most spectacular exhibition venues in Paris. You can view it here.

  • These rooms are slick, but the 80’s room needs a Simon.
