An exhibition where flowers and the market intermingle

From 17th-century tulipomania to cryptocurrency, the exhibition “From Tulip to Crypto Daisy” focuses on forms of trade, market codes and different forms of art and speculation.
By evoking the speculative market that was the tulip market in the 17th century up to the market linked to crypto-currencies, the exhibition aims to be a marketplace dealing with its different forms of transaction, from the emerging to the accomplished artist, from the classical to the crypto artist.
It brings together works of painters, new media artists but also crypto-artists. Among the accomplished artists, a work by Paul Rebeyrolle on the theme of monetarism or a Botero tulip will be presented there. Confirmed younger artists like Ronan Barrot, Bady and Jade Dalloul, Prosper Legault ... digital artists like Robbie Barrat , the DataDada, Anna Ridler... crypto artists like Bananakin, Norman Harman ...

Where is the value of an item? Is it palpable, esteemable? Is it only definable? During the tulip crisis, in the north of the United Provinces, in the middle of the 17th century, a speculative market was racing around the most ephemeral, the most fragile, the most futile, perhaps the most vain object which is: a flower. The tulip, brought back from the Ottoman Empire to the West by European diplomats a few decades earlier, was then enjoying extraordinary success as an ornamental plant.
