When champagne meets art

As part of its 250th anniversary, the House of Veuve Clicquot is proud to present “Solaire Culture Exhibition”, a unique traveling exhibition that celebrates female creativity and pays homage to the legacy of the daring Madame Clicquot. Eleven internationally renowned women artists come together for this event in London, where female creativity takes center stage, led by French curator Camille Morineau and set designer Constance Guisset.

Veuve Clicquot, with its history of empowering and promoting women, has allowed these icons of contemporary art to take the lead in the exhibition, providing them with a platform to pay homage to Madame Clicquot and her invention, as well as the emotional power of the sun, symbolized in the emblematic yellow label of the Maison.

Among the participants in this exhibition are names such as the Japanese Yayoi Kusama, the manga artist Moyoco Anno, Sheila Hicks and the self-taught Cece Philips. Her work presents new interpretations of Veuve Clicquot’s history and legacy, providing a uniquely feminine perspective on the maison’s 250 years.

The exhibition takes us on a historical journey, from Yayoi Kusama’s reinterpretation of Madame Clicquot’s portrait to valuable historical documents and artifacts, such as a letter signed by Madame Clicquot and an original bottle of Veuve Clicquot from the 1840s, recovered from a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea.

Since 1972, Veuve Clicquot has shown a strong commitment to women and businesswomen around the world, especially through its international program BOLD by Veuve Clicquot, created to increase the visibility of women entrepreneurs. This commitment is further highlighted during the exhibition, which will include an energetic program of cultural activities and a special BOLD room on the exhibition space, created exclusively for the City of London.
