LA VAGUE DE SAINT PAUL & SPA ****
Resonating with the masculine artistic history of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, the summer exhibition at the Hôtel La Vague chooses to convey the alterity through the feminine, with a particular emphasis given to the space and environnement. A specificity which echoes strongly within the artistic heritage of the territory (Villa Santo Sospir, Villa E1027, Fondation Maeght, the numerous chapels, more recently Hôtel Windsor, to name a few). These artistic remains, ruins of the modern times, recount moments of friendship, a certain rhythm, inspired travels.
The purpose and vision of the Hôtel La Vague follow these narratives; the strongly connoted architecture, surrounded by an ethereal nature is an invitation to wander, meander and share.
The group exhibition ‘Courber la ligne du temps’ refers to the choreography of the bodies in the transiting space of the Hotel, breaking with the linearity of its time, where past, future and present shape every single instant.
Art is omnipresent throughout the year:
The Fondation Maeght, one of the most important collections
La Vague has been a partner of the Fondation Maeght and a member of its Société des Amis since it was opened in 2013. It houses one of the most important collections of paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphic works of modern art by contemporary artists in Europe, with more than 13,000 references.
Since it opened its doors in 1964, the Fondation Maeght has organised more than 140 exhibitions of international renown.
A unique and timeless place, the Maeght Foundation invites visitors to immerse themselves in their surroundings and admire the works on display and the beauty of mother nature.
Saint-Paul de Vence, Home of Artists
La Vague de Saint Paul is located not far from Saint-Paul de Vence, a traditional fortified village dating back to the XIV century perched atop a hill between Nice and Cannes. Considered to be one of the most picturesque villages in Provence, Saint-Paul-de-Vence was for a long time a favoured destination of artists from far and wide: Marc Chagall made his home here. Henri Matisse lived nearby, in Vence. Jean-Paul Sartre, Pablo Picasso, Yves Montand, Simone Signoret, Lino Ventura and poet Jacques Prévert used to frequent the famous hotel-restaurant La Colombe d’Or.
Today, Saint-Paul de Vence remains an extremely popular tourist destination, attracting more than 2 million visitors a year.
