La Petite Maison Dubai in collaboration with Opera Gallery will become a museum of dining starting in celebration of Art Week.
From 13 – 20 March, the French restaurant will display the works of well-known artists and photographers.
“You can only fully understand a work of art when you’ve eaten next to it, danced next to it, and lived next to it,” said La Petite Maison general manager Antoine Jaillet.
Sculptures from the ‘Born to Shop’ exhibition by New York artist Jonathan Seliger will feature.
The collection comprises pop art renditions of Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Chanel shopping bags.
Diners will also have the chance to view Coco Chanel and Brigitte Bardot photography by Toronto-born Douglas Kirkland.
Kirkland first became famous after photographing Marilyn Monroe for Look Magazine’s 25th anniversary in 1961.
“Art and food have a lot of parallels. Both are open to interpretation and we want to provide a space that allows guests to experience both,” added Jaillet.
“Hanging works of art at La Petite Maison Dubai, keeps the atmosphere inspirational and refreshing.”
