Exhibition in St Barth: "Art meets fashion"
From August 2nd to August 28, Eden Rock Gallery and Art Saint Barth will present the exhibition "Arts Meets Fashion", at the Eden Rock, St Jean Bay. Regarding to the organizers, Art meets fashion is "an ongoing philosophy that has long been a method of democratizing the visuel arts sphere, making it accessible for a wider audience". Art is intensely personal and often kept exclusice by the museum and collector based structure of the art world, whereas fashion is an outlet available to all. Artist/designer creative collaborations make visual art available on a platform that has the capability to reach millions of people, rather than stopping short at a select few. Within the ethos of "Art Meets Fashion", two energies become on, and everybody benefit from it. In this exhibition, the work of a variety of artists in presented through fashion. Taking centre page are designed by Jean Charles de Castelbajac, whose fans range from Lady Gaga to the Pope, Alessandra d'Urso, the ultimate in tough-meets-tender photography, Maripol, the Polaroid-armed driving force of the 1980's New York art scene, Thomas Lélu, whose work playfully dissects what we call the "art object", Blair Chivers, positive psychologist in the making, Robert Montgomery, working in a markedly post-situationist tradition, Kolkoz, whose two brains and four hands form one throught-provoking artistic mind, and Ruiz Stephinson, whose work forms a material harbor for our whimsical dreams.
