Exhibitions for 2022
To celebrate the long-awaited 2022 season, we invite you to experience 3 enticing exhibitions at our Riviera Grande Dame. The monumental sculpture works of Manolo Valdes punctuate the landscape in our 22-acre private park with “La Rêverie”. “Three Minutes in Hollywood” by photographer Kiki Kausch in the Lérins Islands Salon offers a playful peek at some of today’s most illustrious cinema stars. And at Eden-Roc Grill, “Belmondo, Le Magnifique”, a Paris Match expo, features breathtaking photos of the French cinema icon and the starlets with whom he shared the spotlight.
“La Rêverie” by Manolo Valdés
Born in Valencia, Spain in 1942, Manolo Valdés is a world-renowned multimedia artist whose drawings, paintings, sculptures and etchings are inspired by the historic masterpieces of Velazquez, Picasso, Matisse and others. Based in New York City, the artist is known for his profound originality, exquisite technique and his ability to constantly innovate.
An open-air dreamscape
This season, Opera Gallery overtakes the parks of the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc and of the Château Saint-Martin & Spa and presents La Rêverie, an open-air exhibition with works by Spanish artist Manolo Valdés. Thus, thirteen monumental sculptures punctuate the sumptuous exterior settings of these two exceptional hotels. Nine of these are located on the grounds at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc to create a vivid dialog between nature and art. Featured in the exhibit are the artist’s Head with Butterflies, Reina Mariana, Infanta Margarita and other captivating works.
Château Saint-Martin & Spa
Four other monumental sculptures occupy the gardens of our sister hotel in Vence.

The perfect shot
For “Three Minutes in Hollywood”, Kiki Kausch spent only 3 minutes in the room with each of her famous subjects in order to capture them at their most honest and unfiltered.
