Following the success of the ISLE OF DOGS exhibition in 2018, 180 Studios is delighted to continue its partnership with Wes Anderson with an experience showcasing the art and design of THE FRENCH DISPATCH. In addition to costumes, props and sets from each of the film’s stories, the exhibition includes miniature dioramas, large-scale oil paintings and a working version of “Le Sans Blague” café, one of its most memorable sets.

On the death of its beloved Kansas-born editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., (Bill Murray) the staff of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé, convenes to write his obituary. Memories of Howitzer flow into the creation of four stories: a travelogue of the seediest sections of the city itself from The Cycling Reporter; “The Concrete Masterpiece,” about a criminally insane painter, his guard and muse, and his ravenous dealers; “Revisions to a Manifesto,” a chronicle of love and death on the barricades at the height of student revolt; and “The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner,” a suspenseful tale of drugs, kidnapping and fine dining.
