The Advent calendar

The secret atelier of the Chinese artist everyone is talking about

One of the most highly rated contemporary artists of the moment has just set up his workshop in a suite of the Royal Monceau, displaying his exclusive works, never unveiled until now. Normally, only the most wealthy collectors would have the chance to visit, but this time, we can make arrangements.

Now is the moment to reveal the name of the mystery artist. At the same time photographer, performer and body painter, the Chinese artist, Liu Bolin, is also called the invisible man or the chameleon, because his work consists in melting inside his photos—until he disappears completely.

By appointment

To stay discreet, the visit is organized by rendez-vous. And just like the happy few, it’s the Art Concierge of the palace, Julie Eugène, who is in charge of hosting you in person around a glass of vintage Ruinart Champagne 2010. Quite a privilege. Price of the adventure? €30. Hurry up, the clandestine workshop will close its doors on the 10th of November.

The added plus: dinners pairing dishes with Ruinart Champagnes are organized in the suite during the event (starting at €195).

The hidden Liu Bolin atelier at the Royal Monceau, from Tuesday the 23rd of October to Sunday the 10th of November 2018. By reservation only, call 01 42 99 98 81 or by email at artprogram.paris@raffles.com.
