In the extension of the conversation spirit so dear to Raymond Hains and especially with his Palissade des emplacements réservés  raising scandal on the Paris first Biennale in 1959 (which questioned the commonly recognized ideas of the notion of realism), Monnaie de Paris invites, each day of the exhibition, a new artist to present a poster at the dock of Les Vedettes du Pont-Neuf, mythical place for Raymond Hains.

In parallel of the exhibition at Monnaie de Paris, Les Vedettes du Pont-Neuf until July 17th, 54 contemporary artists will feature a  poster everyday for Merci Raymond! This creative gesture, turned towards the street, pays tribute to Raymond Hains’s spirit and practice in his attraction for fences and the urban world.
