On October 15 in Paris, over 90 years after the inauguration of Rue Mallet-Stevens, artists, collectors, gallerists, and art critics gathered on the famed street for a celebratory night of art and design during FIAC.
Guests enjoyed a cocktail hosted by Galerie 54, Dentsu Aegis Network, and Alexandre Sap at the Jan and Joel Martel Gallery, where they sipped champagne provided by Perrier-Jouët while experiencing a first look at an exhibition hosted by gallerist Eric Touchaleaume.
On view were works by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret arranged across the ground floor and second floor of the gallery. The show includes the architects’ furniture, a personal selection of archaeology, and modern and contemporary art creating a dialogue between art and design.
“We must partner with those who create: designers, artists, musicians, influencers, to be inspired and inspiring,” said Thierry Jadot, President of Dentsu Aegis Network France. “Events such as tonight, where we mix genres, where we meet beauty and creators, is indispensable and intended to be developed at Dentsu.”
Visitors at the opening cocktail were invited to visit the Reifenberg and Martel hotels, showcasing architectural marvels like Jean Prouvé’s first portico and Louis Barillet’s stained glass, as well as views of the street from the Martel’s roof terrace.
