Les Nuits d’Été, Exhibition celebrating Villa Noailles Centenary
Les Nuits d’Été
Opening in tandem with the international Design Parade Hyères festival, Pierre Yovanovitch has unveiled a site-specific scenography celebrating the centennial anniversary of Villa Noailles. As a longtime collaborator of the Art Center, Pierre Yovanovitch was selected to reimagine the original summer residence of the late Villa Noailles founders Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles, who built the property a century ago. Paying homage to the couple’s immense and eternal impact on the 20th century art scene, with a particular focus on Madame de Noailles’s storied spirit, Yovanovitch incorporated pieces from the de Noailles archives as well as commissioning contemporary artworks. The scenography will be on view at Villa Noailles from June 23, 2023 – January 14, 2024.
