The Jeep World Tour is an exhibition designed by Art Bridge at the MotorVillage on the Champs-Élysées, where a community of artists gathered to take people on a trip around the world.
MotorVillage, a unique automobile showroom created by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, chose Art Bridge to design its new exhibition made for the whole family. From December 2019 to February 2020, the Jeep World Tour makes people experience a brand- new tour around the world without leaving the world’s most beautiful avenue.
For this journey across the continents, a playful tour has been organised on the 5 floors of the building, where designers, illustrators and photographers share their vision of 6 major cities around the world. These custom-made artistic decors will be the new MotorVillage playground until February 2020.
The adventure begins as soon as guests the building, with an artistic installation of hang- gliders that plunges them into Queenstown, the iconic city of extreme and winter sports.
The journey continues in Asia where the illustrator Farah Allegue has composed a life-size fresco of Tokyo to capture the vibrant atmosphere of the Japanese megalopolis.
Then off to America where the photographer Romain Staros immerses us in the heart of the famous Motor City through a selection of photos from the “Detroit in Arles” series (presented at the last “Rencontres d’Arles 2019”) which have been transformed into monumental-sized prints for this exhibition.
Then illustrator Delphine Dussoubs aka Dalkhafine takes guests further south to Buenos Aires through a gigantic fresco in warm colors. There’s an illustration that becomes a world map where Motorvillage globetrotters can indicate the cities they have visited or become tango dancers in a photocall.
Delphine, an artist who has already collaborated with Pharrell Williams, Woodkid, Major Lazer and Jain, also takes guests to Africa in the city of Cape Town where she created on the 1st floor a magnificent panorama of the South African city that becomes a circuit for toy cars that youngsters love.
Finally, the top floor takes guests back to Europe where the Brunoir studio breaks free from the rules and offers up a deconstructed and playful version of Paris’ monuments thanks to a unique and elegant artistic work.
