Christian Louboutin : l’exhibition[niste]

Conceived as an invitation to dive into the teeming universe of Christian Louboutin, the exhibition explores all the facets of an inspiration with multiple references, in a place that is dear to the creator and which saw the birth of his vocation.

Born in Paris in the 12th arrondissement, Christian Louboutin was fascinated as a teenager by the architectural beauty and the ornamental richness of the Palais de la Porte Dorée, which very early nourished his love for art and applied arts.

It is there, in this masterpiece of Art Deco, that the young Christian Louboutin is seized by a sign prohibiting the wearing of stilettos, which subsequently inspired the iconic Pigalle shoe and will be reinvented over time seasons.

The exhibition reveals the inspirations and the creative process of Christian Louboutin, the exhibition stages the creator’s vision through some of the most precious works from his personal collection as well as loans from public collections.

Come and discover this exhibition and our beautiful City of Light by staying at the Hotel Victor Hugo Paris Kléber.

Toulouse-Lautrec at the Grand Palais

Until January 27, 2020, Toulouse-Lautrec is the star of the Grand Palais.

The last major Toulouse-Lautrec retrospective in France took place twenty-seven years ago.

The opportunity to discover in more than 200 works, the uniqueness of an artist famous for his paintings of cabarets, brothels and Montmartre.

If the artist has wonderfully represented the electricity of the Parisian night and its pleasures, it aims to translate the reality of contemporary society in all its aspects, up to the least suitable.

The exhibition finally shows how this aristocrat from Languedoc, anxious to succeed, imposed his lucid, serious and funny look on Paris in the 1890s and why he inscribed himself as a precursor of avant-garde movements of the 20th century, as futurism.

With 32 paintings, the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum in Albi is the biggest contributor to the exhibition, which brings together works from around the world.

Stay at the Victor Hugo Paris Kléber hotel located less than 30 minutes on foot from the Grand Palais to discover this exhibition and our beautiful City of Lights.
