With color as the weapon of choice, Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris announces the launch of the new Art Attack exhibition in collaboration with Art Photo Expo. Taking place from May 4 to July 31, 2018, the exhibition spotlights the world of street and pop art featuring works from iconic artists including Bansky, Mr. Brainwash, Jeff Koons and Bradley Theodore.
Fashioned as a Paris street, the exhibition is not confined to one room with works on display throughout the hotel – from the Art Bookstore, hotel lobby to Le Royal Monceau’s new boutiques. The exhibition will include a series of behind-the-scenes art performances with featured events including Jef Aérosol, who will spray paint the art gallery window, and a gallery wall takeover by Tempo Nok, to further immerse guests in this exciting world.
“Every one of the artists presented here has cultivated their artistic identity through different media, including stencils, calligraphy, graffiti, drawing, sculpture, photography, painting and collage,” said Audrey Trabelsi, the founder of Art Photo Expo France. “For some of the artists, whose first canvases were the walls of inner-city streets, exhibiting here alongside famous contemporary artists on the walls of one of the most renowned luxury hotels in the world represents a great achievement and the height of recognition.”
