Inspired by the bohemian spirit that exhales along the corridors of the legendary Hotel La Louisiane in Paris Saint Germain , (equivalent to the Chelsea Hotel in New York) , the exhibition “Flower Power” pays homage to a time when the revolution was played with pie shovel collars, flared trousers, smoking pipes and especially flowers.
In a few rooms at the Hotel Louisiana, under the banner of the famous hippie slogan “Flower Power”, seven contemporary artists revive in their own way the colors of the 60s and 70s. In the meandrous hotel rooms, one can discover the works of Martine Aballéa, Pierre Joseph, Vidya Gastaldon, Hsia Fei-Chang, Frank Perrin, Suzanne Husky, Sophie Kitching and many others below …
