We think you'll find this space quite a surprise. As well as the obligatory smart showroom/exhibition space on the ground floor, the Renault Atelier (literally, workshop) gets our vote for the cosiest spot of all the car manufacturers.
Bright, airy and futuristic, their multi-level restaurant/bar serves pretty tasty food and not at ridiculous prices (rather rare in the area). Perhaps that's why they get almost 2 million visitors a year?!
in the studio, the new exhibition at Petit Palais from April 5th, to July, 17th, 2016
From April 5th, to July, 17th, 2016, Petit Palais will indulge us into the atmosphere of artist workshops through the exhibition “In The Studio”.
Since the early days of photography, artist workshops had always fascinated photographers and. This exhibition will document the interiors and draws portraits of the artists in vogue, and take the workshop as a metaphor for the birth of images.
In The Studio will showcase 400 photographs that will allow the public to approach closer the artist's creative process, from Ingres to Picasso, Matisse, Bourdelle, Zadkine, Brancusi, to Joan Mitchell, Miquel Barcelo, or Jeff Koons.
This significant exhibition will be the first to treat as dramatically this photographic look at the workshop. The exhibition, far from being an exhaustive presentation of photography workshops since the birth of the process, questions the persistence of fascination to photography, and highlights the importance of the workshop in the artistic process. Save the date, In The Studio will be running from April 5th, to July, 17th, 2016 at Petit Palais.
