The Swiss company celebrates the 57th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia with a special art exhibition
All the eyes on Venice: the ‘Floating City’ is hosting the 57th International Art Exhibition, the most prestigious event of the contemporary art calendar, which brings together curators, artists, collectors, art dealers and journalists for two weeks of significant exhibitions. The Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet wouldn’t have missed this occasion to show its love for contemporary art. In fact, there are countless parallels between contemporary art and the artistry that lies at the heart of Audemars Piguet’s timepieces. That’s why the brand has long shared these affinities along with its interest in creativity and innovation with the art world. The manufacture organized a special exhibition showcasing exceptional timepieces in an exclusive lounge at the heart of the Galleria Contini, together with the art works of selected artists supported by the Audemars Piguet Art Commission: Alexandre Joly, Dan Holdsworth and Kurt Hentshläger.
On Saturday, May 20, a selected VIP guest list will take part in the show’s vernissage. Art lovers will also be able to admire the exhibition dedicated to the famous Spanish artist Manolo Valdés on the other floors of the Gallery. The evening will continue with an exclusive dinner at Hotel Monaco & Gran Canal Venezia with the extraordinary participation of the artists Manolo Valdés and Dan Holdsworth.
