The Bris­tol Hotel cel­e­brates its 80th birth­day with art

An 80 year anniver­sary with Godon. If through­out the year the hotel tries to be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent whilst try­ing not to dis­ori­en­tate its guests and still mak­ing them feel wel­come, then it has gone to con­sid­er­able effort this year to achieve this for its 80th anniversary

By mark­ing the event by work­ing with Alain Godon, to whom Emmanuel has given carte blanche . The result here in the hotel is the unveil­ing not only of new works (pow­er­ful com­po­si­tions as cheer­ful as they are colour­ful humor­ously depict­ing the sea­side resort), but also the exe­cu­tion of an out­stand­ing pub­lic­ity event. The patio holds a mon­u­men­tal tem­po­rary instal­la­tion, a sculp­ture in the form of an Eif­fel tower in sand, which is a ref­er­ence to the dis­pute between Paris and Le Tou­quet over the Paris-​Plage affair; art is being used here as a means to “rec­on­cil­i­a­tion and intel­li­gent accord”. An Alain Godon exhi­bi­tion on the theme of “Paris at the beach”.
