Au Vieux Panier

Arresting installations at inspirational new art hotel...

Thankfully, when art and hotels meet, it’s increasingly through more than just the banal hanging of a painting. Hoteliers are getting serious about art, and artists are getting creative with their spaces. The latest lodgings to welcome their guests into a truly immersive art experience is Marseilles’ Au Vieux Panier, a 17th century Corsican grocery shop turned explosive art experience.

From internationally acclaimed street artist Tilt – with his breathtaking half graffitied, half stark-white Panic Room – to design studio Mass Confusion‘s electrifyingly surreal Purgatory Palace; the artists haven’t just thrown a few choice pieces of art at their commissions – they’ve created overwhelming site-specific installations that are easily befitting some of the world’s top galleries.
