ORLAN: New Sculpture and New Photography
Claude Viallat: Recent Works
Hélène Lamarque, a gallerist and private art dealer with offices in Paris and Hong Kong opened a public space in Wynwood not far from the museums of Mira & Don Rubell and Martin Z. Marguilies. Originating from Paris and with a classic European education, Lamarque has bold ambitions to help push Miami even further as the cultural destination of the Americas.
While Lamarque’s background and focus is on established French Contemporary Art such as Claude Viallat and ORLAN, Lamarque in an interview with the French Consulate is quoted by saying, “I am wary of the label ‘French contemporary art’ and skeptical about the whole idea of culture. ’Nationalism’ brings us back to the darkest hours of European history. I also believe that our artists are first and foremost international and that they were fed on the history of world art.”

SocialMiami fashion contributor, stylist Elysze Held, joined a few choice Miami fashionistas at this serenely elegant evening, featuring a strong and sensual offering of Lanvin Spring 2012.
