Bottega Veneta’s “Talking Objects” Exhibit in China

What an exhibit-filled week this is turning out to be! Yesterday, it was “Valentino: Master of Couture”at London’s Somerset House, and today, it’s Bottega Veneta, a brand which demonstrates its continuous support for the Arts and efforts towards the development and preservation of cultural heritage.

After the success of the first contemporary photography exhibition entitled “Damaged Heritage”, its latest “Talking Objects” exhibit opened on November 24th on the permanent exhibition space at Bottega Veneta’s largest boutique in China: the 2nd floor at the Yifeng Galleria on the Shanghai Bund. “Talking Objects” is a platform that showcases  a total of 7 artist’s and photographer’s works that explore the theme of the intersection between common objects and our everyday lives.

“This is a thought-provoking exhibition that allows visitors of our store to enjoy something out of the ordinary while giving us the opportunity to give back to the community and help artists show their work, so it’s good for everybody,” says Tomas Maier, Bottega Veneta’s Creative Director, who attended the official Yifeng opening in May. “We put a lot of time and effort into choosing the causes we support, whether it’s young musicians or artists or designers, and I’m really happy this project has resulted in such an impressive collection of work. Photography is one of my passions, so I’m particularly pleased with how well this has worked out and been received by our customers.”

The exhibit will run from 24th November until February 2013.
