Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
The VIP lounge at the Dallas Art Fair is a great place to relax, socialize, and sip some Ruinart champagne between perusing the booths. This year’s lounge will have an especially sophisticated presence from the 288-year-old champagne house and longtime supporter of the arts. Having collaborated with artists in the past like Piet Hein Eek, Erwin Olaf, Georgia Russell, Hubert le Gall, Maarten Baas, and India Mahdavi (to name just a few), Ruinart is a proud patron of contemporary art and design. Beyond the VIP lounge, be sure to check out some of the best restaurants in Dallas for further flutes of Ruinart’s unparalleled bubbly.
Also in the lounge this year, you’ll find an exhibition from Peter Blake Modern. The director of the California-based gallery will present a specially curated design show focused on the California Light and Space movement with work from Peter Alexander, Lita Albuquerque, Larry Bell, Ron Cooper, and Mary Corse, along with some California Hard-Edge including work by Scot Heywood and John M. Miller. The presentation is an extension of the gallery’s 2016 show “The Tendency of the Moment | International Design: The Bauhaus Through Modern,” featuring international designers and spanning over four decades of collectible design.
“This will be the first time that we have combined fine art and collectible design within the same exhibit—effectively showing the modernist influence across both disciplines,” said Blake.
