We hear from friends that at Frieze NY it was 32 C! May 9 was almost that hot in all senses of the word. Artist Andrew Lui collaborated with fashion designer Yves JeanLacasse for a unique installation that drew a crowd, both inside Gallery Han, where the private premiere took place, and on the street in the window display.
Lui’s beautiful art – calligraphic sweeps and lyrical colors printed on textural rice paper – sells internationally.
And Lacasse has shown his collections in Paris, to name but one European city. As Guest Curator of Andrew Lui’s show – Gilded Age – Lacasse worked with fabric that the artist painted and designed a gorgeous garment fit to be worn to the Met Gala. Seen in the crowd were Gallery director Chloe Ng and assistant Bruno Bertilotti,
as well as Wagram founder / CEO Richard Gervais, musician celeb Pascale Bourbeau, author Julie Keith, Han Gallery artist Luis-Fernando Suàrez, journalist / celeb Richard Burnett and mom Lillian Burnett
