Exhibition "Bistrot ! De Baudelaire à Picasso" La Cité du Vin in Bordeaux

  • From 17/03/2017 until 21/06/2017


Theme : Creative arts/plastic arts, Wine / oenology


Containing around a hundred works, the aim of this exhibition is to highlight the essential role played by cafes and bistrots, convivial spaces, in creation and society from the 18th century until mid-20th century.

At times leaving France behind for the rest of Europe and the USA, combining traditional media with photography and cinema, it celebrates the living, fertile links between the world of the arts and the world of the cafe.

Exploring the broad range of situations created by cafes, from solitary drinker to pick-up scenes, from melancholic withdrawal to identity affirmation, from male exclusivity to female advocacy, the exhibition also examines what artists were trying to say about themselves and their time. From section to section, the mobile geography of these urban enclaves – open to all our dreams and all our encounters – leads the visitor back to themselves.

Some artists' names to be presented in this exhibition : Louis Aragon, Charles Baudelaire, Jean Béraud, Charles Camoin, Otto Dix, Robert Doisneau, Raoul Dufy, Jean-Louis Forain, Jörg Immendorf, Léon Lhermitte, André Masson, Pablo Picasso, Jean-François Raffaëlli, Mark Rothko, Patti Smith, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Jacques Villon, Edouard Vuillard et bien d’autres…

Exhibition Bistrot! From Baudelaire to Picasso - March 17th until 21st June 2017 at La Cité du Vin

Price: 8 Euros for the exhibition itself, or 24 Euros with the visit of La Cité du Vin (including the immersive and interactive experience of the permanent guided by our hand held guide and the wine tasting at the belvedere)
