When Artists Exhibit in Luxury Stores

When art and fashion meet, a harmonic symbiosis operates. Artworks and masterpieces can be spotted in luxury stores and supermarket or temporary stores/galleries. Three of them are unmissable. Let’s run through three different artists’ inclusion in well-known boutiques, supermarket and stores.

Museums are closed, but masterpieces still can be admired at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche in which Prune Nourry has Carte Blanche. The luxury store, Rue de Sèvres in Paris, opened its door to the first French artist for a hypnotic installation. “L’Amazone Érogène,” title of the artwork is staging multiple arrows suspended in time and orientating its trajectory to a large target of breasts form. Referring to the artist’s breast cancer, the installation can also be perceived as the “representation of the lines of life, like a cut tree trunk”.

The signed arrows will be sold for charitable purposes, to raise funds for helping women fighting cancer.

You have until the 21st of February to appreciate the view and follow the commented visit exhibition.

Casa Ahorita, a temporary store and gallery, opened in Mexico City. Simple and soft art objects fill shelves made by several artists such as the ceramist José García Antonio or potter Alberta Sánchez Mateo, and gives a natural beauty atmosphere to the place.

Traditional, authentic and poetic handmade objects are exhibited in the store gallery. The place, gathering local and international artistic design, infuses creativity and spiritual vibes.

The peaceful and calm place will make you recharge your batteries while enjoying the wild and natural environment.

You can access the Casa Ahorita on appointment at Orizaba 193 in Mexico City.

 

Restrictions due to coronavirus affect the culture, but you still can visit stores as if you were at an exhibition to admire art pieces.
