Just in case you’re filing story on Art events happening around the city or topic on how restaurants are becoming the new art galleries?
La Petite Maison Dubai in collaboration with Opera Gallery will become a museum of dining starting on March 13th in celebration of Art Week. The union between art and food has been proven in history time and time again. Ever since Picasso, Miro and Chagall painted in exchange for meal at La Colombe d’Or, the 1920s café turned hotel in the south of France, the close connection between art and food has flourished.
Art A La Carte – La Petite Maison unites Art and Cuisine in exhibition from March 13th
Diners will be able to view sculptures from New York artist Jonathan Seliger whose “Born To Shop” collection comprises eye catching pieces of pop art in the form of over-sized shopping bags including Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Chanel.
Photography from Toronto native Douglas Kirkland – who found fame after photographing Marilyn Monroe for Look Magazine’s 25th anniversary in 1961 – will also be on display, giving diners a glimpse of Kirkland’s most iconic subjects including Coco Chanel and Brigitte Bardot. The works will be on display at La Petite Maison from March 13th until 20th.
