Welcome to The Wick
While the U.K. groans under the bizarre cloud of party mad Boris and Prince Andrew embarrassment, it’s prime time to divert one’s attention to the shifting tectonic plates of the art world. Digital is proving a viable cash cow. Following the lead of the British Museum and the Uffizi, the Grand Palais will be launching a special gallery space for immersive digital exhibitions when it reopens after restoration in 2024. Expect NFT sales in the gift shop. Like the Van Gogh exhibition, Grand Palais Immersif plans to roll out shows globally.
Meanwhile, give yourself an optic treat at the Corner Shop space at Selfridges. The superstore has collaborated with Paco Rabanne and the estate of 60s artist, Victor Vasarely who wowed his generation with mind warping optic works, on a sensory overload installation with a capsule Rabanne collection attached.
All best wishes from me and the KTW family,
