Pullman, the cosmopolitan brand of the AccorHotels Group, reaffirms its commitment to contemporary art with the launch of its programme Artist Playground by Pullman.

Through interactive elements such as live performancesand workshops, hotel guests get the opportunity to connect with the art experience in aninteresting and meaningful way. Contemporary art becomes a connecting thread thatlinks artists and guests from far and wide. Timeless and original, these exhibitions allowtravellers and visitors to immerse themselves in each artist's cultural environment.

This creative initiative accurately and consistently reflects the world of thePullman brand and its "Our World is your Playground" philosophy.

On 16 March 2017, the Pullman Brussels Centre Midi, a hotel designed by the architectJean-Philippe Nuel, will host the first Brussels Artist Playground and exhibit the works of Dutchartist Bas Van den Hurk. This artistic initiative also sees the brand join forces with Artlead.net,Europe's main online marketplace for contemporary art.Exhibited in many museums and galleries in Los Angeles, Cologne, Paris, Barcelona, NewYork and Amsterdam, Bas Van den Hurk draws his inspiration from Sonia Delaunay andPablo Picasso, creating a series of brushstrokes and poppy printed patterns on silk. As partof this Artist Playground project, Bas Van den Hurk has created a series of ten works thatcan either be exhibited together as one large installation or individually as single pieces.

In celebration of the project's launch, and for the first and unique time, all ten pieces willbe presented together in exclusivity.Passionate about art in all its forms, Pullman will also establish new and bold collaborationswith designers and architects such as Christophe Pillet, contemporary artists such as rockphotographer Richard Bellia, graphic illustrator Louisa Gagliardi and stylist Martine Sitbon.
