Paris Hotel Launches Art Rotation

lavigne_0

Heads up, art fans! In addition to the permanent collection of artwork and sculpture in Paris' Le Pavillon des Lettres, the literary-themed hotel just off the Champs Elysées, the property has launched an ongoing art series that will showcase collections of original artwork on a rotating basis.
 
The first installation features the photographs of local Parisian photographer Blaise Lavigne, and can be viewed (and purchased) through June 10. The artwork is dotted among the hotel’s public spaces.
 
Lavigne’s exhibit, entitled Correspondences, features 25 portraits of readers (which we say fits nicely with the literary atmosphere of Le Pavillon des Lettres). Following Lavigne’s exhibit, Le Pavillon des Lettres will display Jean-Daniel Henry’s photography collection, “Les portraits dans le Noir” (portraits in the dark) from September 6 through December 31.
 
Le Pavillon des Lettres is located at 12 rue des Saussaies in Paris. For more information about the hotel, visit www.pavillondeslettres.com. For more information about Lavigne’s work, visit www.blaiselavigne.com.
