Artist salons chez Ligne Roset
03 nov 2014 by art:i:curate team
Encompassing both, the French cultural and historical context of the salon as an art exhibition and as a gathering, this project displays emerging contemporary art with a focus on a series of talks by the platform’s London-based artists.
During the period of the showcase over two weeks, the salons will be hosted at Ligne Roset’s central London location. In line with art:i:curate’s ‘Curated By’ exhibitions, people from various industries will decide on the artists that will be participating in each salon. Each selected artist will have the opportunity to be paired with their curators in a Q&A-style event discussing their work and practice. The exhibiting work of the featured artists will be highlighted as part of their salon, including a wider showcase of their works available to purchase.
art:i:curate extends an open invitation to all to participate in the selection of the artists. By signing up at www.articurate.net and 'liking' works of art, audiences will have the opportunity to express their choices in the art they wish to experience.
Known for its artful collaborations with both established and up-and-coming talents in contemporary design, Ligne Roset provides its own curated ‘salon’ as the setting for this series. Taking place in an intimate living-room type atmosphere with a limited number of people, the salon becomes a circle to closely take in the art and gain a deeper understanding of the work from the artist himself and through open discussion.
Artist Salons chez Ligne Roset is foremost an educational and social project, offering the chance for the artist to engage directly with his or her audience. Each salon becomes a micro-exhibition of the featured artist’s work, in display as well as in an engaging interactive ‘performance’ between artist, curator, and collector.
