Mazarine Events a orchestré et produit la soirée d'inauguration du Peninsula à Paris
A veritable who’s who of entertainment and media were invited to the opening of the Parisian Palace, just a stone's throw from the famed Place de l'Étoile. We privatized Avenue des Portugais to install a larger than life photocall, where hundreds of guests immortalized the moment. We invited guests to join us on a unique journey through the ages to discover this historical place. Guests were wowed by aerial acrobatics, fine dining and exceptional musical performances.
Gershwin tunes interpreted by the famous Colonne Orchestra, electro hits by Something À la Mode and R'n'B standards revisited by the divine Inna Modja set the mood.
Alongside our creative and artistic community, we imagine memorable experiences that incorporate, from the early stages of creation until after the event, producing content and creating an echo among media and socially.
An event celebrating the reopening of the Ritz Paris and the restoration of the Vendôme Column by Mazarine Events.
The famous Vendôme Column, first erected in 1810 as a tribute to Napoleon I, was briefly demolished during a period of political turmoil. Since its reinstatement in 1872, it had not been restored in any way ౼ until now. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we created a video mapping, which was projected on the Column, highlighting the history of this Parisian landmark. The evening featured a music and light show that Ritz guests.
The Studio des Acacias hosted Kenny Dunkan's "No Apologies" exhibition in October 2021. This marked the first Reiffers Art Initiatives mentorship program exhibition under the mentorship of American artist Rashid Johnson.
Reiffers Art Initiatives, an endowment fund for young contemporary creation and cultural diversity, opened the inaugural exhibition of its mentorship program “NO APOLOGIES” at the Studio des Acacias in October 2021. The exhibition featured work by French artist Kenny Dunkan, under the mentorship of world-renowned artist Rashid Johnson.
“I have too often apologized to myself for being who I am," says the artist. “Because of my skin color, my sexuality...Today, I don't want to apologize for being the person I am anymore." - Kenny Dunkan.
"NO APOLOGIES" delved into the artist's thoughts on his Caribbean heritage. Each installation formed a microclimate, drawing on the cultural richness of Guadeloupe ౼ from the aesthetic and symbolic power of carnival to mythologies and magical and religious beliefs. It also served as a platform for Kenny Dunkan to discuss the post-colonial heritage of his island. The body itself, a recurring theme for the artist, who never hesitates to use his own black body, was also at the heart of the collection: a fragmented body, diverse and in the making.
The title "NO APOLOGIES" ("no excuses") is the artist’s way of adressing the current violence against bodies, whether black, gay, and his refusal to excuse these actions.
NO APOLOGIES is the inaugural programme of the Reiffers Art Initiatives mentorship with the support of Mazarine, La Mode en Images and the Studio des Acacias. Kenny Dunkan, the first artist to receive the award, has continued an in-depth dialogue with his mentor Rashid Johnson. Nourished by his exchanges and the advice of the famous Afro-American artist, Kenny Dunkan has proposed an exhibition at the opening of FIAC 2021 in the form of an initiatory journey through monumental and immersive installations, sculptures, videos and photographs, recounted in this exceptional book, which bears witness to a unique creative epic.

Reiffers Art Initiatives’ mission is to support France’s new art scene and give it international visibility. It finances and gives exposure to thirty emerging artists every year, who will influence tomorrow’s contemporary art scene.
