An exhibition of urban contemporary art. The exhibit will showcase the private SUSHISAMBA collection including the Eames Inspiration Collection and four works by Remed along with independent street artists Bask, Flip, Sesper, Smael and Tes One. The Pop Up blurs the line between the street and the gallery, presenting a multifaceted exhibition highlighting the freshest and most undeniable influences of urban aesthetics and contemporary design.
Eames Inspiration Collection
The Eames Inspiration collection is comprised of iconic Eames Molded Plywood Chairs as re-imagined by some of today’s most celebrated graffiti and street artists. Eames Inspiration was displayed this past May in Barneys’ famous windows in New York by Simon Doonan and auctioned online to benefit Operation Design – a creative mentorship program that organizes architects, artists and related talents to work with New York City public school students to create motivating and inspiring projects. The majority of the collection was purchased at a public auction by SUSHISAMBA and GGG and gave the public an opportunity to view it in its entirety for the first time since last spring, during Art Basel Miami Beach.
