Meeting with Carine Tissot, Director of the Drawing Lab

“Let’s create a destination around contemporary drawing
Carine Tissot welcomes us at the Drawing Hotel
After joining Christine Phal in 2009 in the Drawing Now adventure, the mother and daughter decided to add a string to their bow by imagining the first Parisian Drawing Center, the Drawing Lab housed by the Drawing Hotel in the strategic district of the Louvre and the Comédie Française and directed by Carine Tissot. Artists are regularly invited to give free rein to their talent and imagine new experiments around drawing.
It is on the occasion of the opening of Christian Lhopital’s exhibition, under the curatorial direction of Jean-Hubert Martin, that Carine Tissot returns to the DNA of this unique place, which has as its signature artists’ interventions in several of its spaces from the perspective of a total work of art. An affirmed identity that opens up the possibilities whether you are a tourist passing through or a regular visitor to the neighbourhood, whether or not you are a fan of contemporary art.
Please note that the next edition of Drawing Now Art Fair will take place from 28 to 31 March
