On Thursday November 3, Garage Education Center will host a public talk with Anton Belov, director at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, and Cecilia Dean, editor-in-chief of the legendary Visionaire magazine, who has recently become the curator of Cadillac House in New York. This event is part of the launch activities for the new Cadillac brand platform "Dare Greatly".
Visionaire and Garage Museum of Contemporary Art are collaborating within this new platform, which also enabled the publication of a new book Visionaire: Experiences in Art and Fashion which will be presented during this conversation.
The audience will have an opportunity to follow two professionals in discussion about strategies that allow the combination of hard-line uncompromising art and a commercial approach, as well as ways to attract well-established artists, photographers and other creatives to be part of a collaborative project. A project that illustrates this approach is Proof: Francisco Goya, Sergei Einsenstein, Robert Longo, an exhibition which opened this fall at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art with the support of Cadillac.
The Museum's book shop will present twenty-five issues of Visionaire magazine that best illustrate the magazine's twenty-five years of existence. These issues include collaborations with John Baldessari, Karl Lagerfeld, Mario Testino, David Sims, Riccardo Tisci, Louis Vuitton, Comme Des Garçons Levi’s, Tiffany, Alexander McQueen and other cult personalities and companies. Every issue is the result of six months' work and a true art piece devoted entirely to one person or subject. It transcends the traditional magazine format.
