Cedrik Cavallier is showcasing his Art Series at The Sagamore Hotel
Sagamore Hotel Miami Beach will present the first edition of the Sagamore Salon. The Sagamore Salon will show approximately 100 works of varied media by as many as 40 artists, inspired by the original “Salon de Paris”, and its more inclusive spinoff, the “Salon des Refusés,” which was established by Napoleon for all of the artists that were rejected by the famous Salon de Paris. The Salon des Refusés was known for accepting new types of art not yet embraced by the establishment, including impressionists. The Sagamore Salon will also incorporate the original salon’s immersive, floor-to-ceiling hanging style that packed the walls with smaller art works.
The Sagamore Salon show will be open 24/7 and on view through September 30th, 2018. All artworks will be for sale. The Sagamore
Salon is held in partnership with Zemack Gallery, Adamar Fine Arts, HartHood56, and curated by the hotel’s resident art advisor,
Sebastien Laboureau. Also, gallery partner Blue Gallery, who s known for its exclusive collection of Israeli art as well as many other
renowned artists, mixing sophisticated flare with contemporary.
The prelimary list of participating artists include Joel Amit, French B., Blood & Candy, Claude Charlier, Cedrik Cavallier, Sheila Elias, Iris
Eshet Cohen, Oren Cohen, Dani Cooperman, Ytzhak Davidovitch, Jon Davis, Jamie Eroncig, Sveta Esser, Amir Genislaw, Lenner Gogli,
Patricio Gonzalez, Edgar Gutierrez, Jamie Jones, Monique Lassoij, Isaac Maimon, Niso Maman, Alex Pauker, Rubem Robierb David
Schluss, and Tali Toledano.
The Sagamore Hotel will present a wide selection of artists, some of them not currently represented by galleries, so that the public will
discover artworks that are not being “sanctioned” by the art world, and that could be the next big thing.
Continuing with the #SagamoreisArt platform, the hotel will host regular happy hour events on Thursdays from 6PM to 9PM with guided
tours by curator Sebastien Laboureau, and art talks by featured artists.
About Cedrik Cavallier
Contemporary artist Cedrik Cavallier was raised in Provence, France, and grew up in the heart of a city surrounded by a rich history
that inspired legends like Van Gogh, Cézanne, and Picasso. These deep colors of nature are instilled in Cavallier’s character and shine
through his creations with great force. His art explores a more profound, metaphysical understanding of humanity and life, representing
a visual transcendental experience. Cavallier strives for his paintings to evoke many types of sensations, and not merely those visible to
Cavallier’s newest collection features brilliant hues full of depth and a futuristic, barren setting, to create an atmosphere of positive
isolation. His work focuses on the connections between the individual experience of selfreflection to emote a universal subconscious
struggling with external and internal turmoil. “There is no complication through concepts, just the invention of shapes and color to create
a personalized view of the present.” His vibrant use of color and brush strokes has evolved to emote tranquility and beauty amongst
turmoil, subtly encouraging the viewer to reflect on the state of their inner and outer world.
About the Paris Salon
Paris Salon, or Salon de Paris, began in 1667 as the official art exhibition of the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Between 1748 and
1890, it was arguably the greatest annual or biennial art event in the Western world. Participation in the Salon was essential for any artist
to achieve success in France for the next 200 years. The Salon de Paris is the template upon which most modern art fairs are based.
Just as with Art Basel and other important art fairs, the vernissage (or opening night,) was a grand, invitation-only social occasion after
which, the public could buy tickets to attend.
The Salon des Paris exhibited paintings floor-to-ceiling and on every available inch of space, in a process that does not have a
curatorial significance. The overbearing mode is aimed at a thorough observation of works that are detached from any biographical and
mathematical context. The viewer scans all the pieces and chooses to focus on those which resonate in the most meaningful manner.
However, the conservative and academic juries were not receptive to the Impressionist painters, whose works were usually rejected,
or poorly placed if accepted. To make the Salons more democratic, Napoleon III instituted the Salon des Refusés, exhibiting all those
artists whose works were rejected from their annual exhibition, including painters such as Gustave Courbet, Edward Manet, and Camille
Pissarro. The first exhibition of the rejected Salon opened in 1863 and symbolizes for many the birth of the avant-garde and the growth
of modern art movements, especially Impressionism.
