Maison Guerlain's "Les Fleurs du Mal" Exhibition Celebrates the Lyrical Sensuality of Flowers

Commemorating Charles Baudelaire’s influential poetry and Empress Eugénie’s patronage of the arts.

Guerlain’s upcoming exhibition, “Les Fleurs du Mal,” delves into the intertwined realms of art, nature and history by paying homage to Charles Baudelaire’s influential poetry and commemorating the 170th anniversary of the “Bee Bottle,” created by the French Maison for Empress Eugénie, a patron of the arts.

Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal, known for both its praise and controversy, led to a significant trial in the history of literature. The Empress’ intervention, which Maison Guerlain now explores, solidified this historical connection. Consequently, the showcase examines the intricate relationship between nature and artistic creation.

Curated by Hervé Mikaeloff, the exhibition features 26 artists from around the world, including household names such as Anselm Kiefer, Robert Mapplethorpe and Thandiwe Muriu, as well as emerging artists like Pauline D’Andigne.

Under the “Bee Art by Guerlain” initiative, the company promotes artistic engagement with pressing societal issues, including the ecological transition. This year, Guerlain collaborates with Lee Ufan Arles to establish the LEE UFAN ARLES X GUERLAIN Art and Environment Prize.

The winner will be revealed during the opening week of the “Les Fleurs du Mal” exhibition. The showcase will be open to the public at Maison Guerlain from October 18 until November 13, coinciding with Paris+ par Art Basel.
