Supported by the Drawing Society, the Drawing Lab is a private art centre dedicated to contemporary drawing, opened in 2017 by Christine Phal, patron of contemporary drawing and founder of DRAWING NOW Art Fair.

The vocation of this place is to ensure the diffusion of contemporary drawing to all audiences



A true uniqueness and a profound cultural sense of service will also make this place memorable: an Art Concierge will guide clients and help them enjoy the most of Paris, from cultural journeys to Parisian expositions, shows and Art events.

Steven Vandeporta, Art Concierge and Drawing Lab Manager

Steven Vandeporta manages the Drawing Lab, a contemporary art center dedicated to drawing and located on the lower ground floor of the Drawing Hotel. Together with artists and curators, he organizes 3 exhibitions a year that are specially conceived for the venue.

He also advises the Drawing Hotel’s guests on exhibitions and cultural events in Paris so they may enjoy a culturally enriching experience during their stay.

In December 2015, thirteen major real estate companies, including SOFERIM who created the Drawing Hotel, signed the charter 1 immeuble, 1 oeuvre (‘One Building, One Artwork’). They thereby committed themselves to acquiring an artwork for every building and renovation program.

At the request of Jean Papahn, SOFERIM’s chairman, the artist Stéfane Perraud created a unique work entitled Dessins hautes fréquences (‘High Frequency Drawings’) for the building’s façade.

Stéfane Perraud, a visual artist initially associated with performance and multimedia art, has been making plastic art since 2008. He examines the impasses and difficulties of science and technology through a continual interchange between the plastic and performing arts. To improved understanding of the present, his work involves a forward-looking approach that appears like archeology from the future. One of his favorite subjects focuses on how light is related to both knowledge and disaster, symbolically as well as scientifically, technically and aesthetically.

Through various electronic techniques and light programming, he produces sculptural, visual work that interacts with the viewer.
