Art Photo Expo Production presents «Femmes, je vous aime»at the Hotel Plaza Athénée.

Beginning February 24 and until the end of April, the Garden Courtyard of the Hôtel Plaza Athénée will feature a sales exhibition of «Femmes je vous aime» as arranged by Art Photo Expo Production. A clear reference to Julien Clerc’s song « Femmes, je vous aime » (Women, I Love You), this exhibition, as its title indicates, has been created to honor women, all women.

Gentle, fatale, committed, fragile, emblematic or anonymous … they are at the forefront of current events and, more than ever, are getting their voices heard. However, artists have not been awaiting the present day to shed the limelight on women. Whether through their force or their frailty, a look, a smile or a subtle detail has sufficed to immortalize their femininity through painting, photography and sculpture. Thus, concomitant with the Paris ready-to-wear Fashion Week and International Women’s Day, the Hotel Plaza Athénée and Art Photo Expo Production are joining together to produce an exclusive sales exhibition.

From February 24 to the end of April no fewer than 20 contemporary international artists will present their vision of femininity in the Garden Courtyard, 25 avenue Montaigne.

The exhibition alludes strongly to the song ’’Femmes, Je vous Aime’’ ©Jean-Loup Dabadie-Julien Clerc:

« quelquefois si drôle…» [So funny, at times], «…sur un coin d’épaule» [with just a bit of shoulder] or sometimes «seules» [alone] because that is what they want.

The exhibition will be accessible to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. A price list will be available upon request.

Firstly, attendant on the noblesse oblige of Haute Couture Fashion, in the famous Courtyard will be displayed photographs associated with some of the great names that are immortalized in association with Women of High Fashion, such as Ormond Gigli (1925 – ), an American photographer most well-known for his photograph « Girls in the Windows » where, in 1960, he had the audacity to have 43 women pose in the windows of a New York City brownstone that was slated for demolition the next day …

… as well as Michel Comte who photographed top models in the 90’s, toppling the heretofore custom of spotlighting movie stars on the covers of women’s magazines !
