Hilton McConnico At Rupture House

Until July 31 2021, Fridays and Saturdays at Rupture House are dedicated to showcase the major and poetic work of artist Hilton McConnico. It is there, in the heart of this splendid location at Place André Malraux, opposite the Comédie Française in Paris, that the brilliant work of the multidisciplinary artist takes place.

Designed by the cultural marketing agency Rupture & Associés, Rupture House is a place of exchange and exhibition anchored in the heart of the Palais Royal district. Until July 31, the first public exhibition dedicated to Hilton McConnico will delight Parisian dandies and aesthetes.

The exhibition is intended to be a dialogue between the new generation of interior designers and this multifaceted artist. Designer, decorator, set designer, photographer, painter and film decorator … When he passed away in 2018, Hilton McConnico left behind a n overwhelming body of work!

Hilton McConnico: An Astounding Body Of Work

We owe him in particular the sets for François Truffaut’s film Vivement dimanche! Or even more scenographies for famous luxury houses … From the Hermès museum in Tokyo, in 2001, through crazy and inspired creations, notably for Daum or the Compagnie des Cristalleries de Saint Louis.

Until July 31, a dialogue will therefore be exhibited at La Rupture House as a tribute to the facetious and madcap spirit of Hilton McConnico. A dialogue that the agency’s founders, Thomas Erber (behind the exhibition), Alexandre Sap and Julien Grollemund left to contemporary designers …

“I remember when I went to the opening of Tout Paris with in the 80s, a restaurant on the roof of the Samaritaine decorated by McConnico. He was then the go-to fashionable decorator. I obviously knew his cacti, but while traveling through time I discovered his American nationality, bringing an unexpected sense of color to France “notes Vincent Darré, one of the guest artists.

We find the interpretation of the vision of the American artist through the prism of those of the duo Atelier Baptiste and Jaïna, Vincent Darré and Pierre Gonalons. Rupture & Associés has entrusted each one of them with the decoration of a room in the Rupture House! And the result is colorful, lively and inspiring all at the same time.

The exhibition is free, by appointment only, until July 31. Saturdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Reservation: house@rupture.tv
