Art and Fashion are one family! I love both!! Chloé and MOCA are still united and stand together to spread creativity, fashion, and art.
During a private tour of the Museum of Contemporary Art on Tuesday night, director Philippe Vergne memorably made the connection between an exhibition of work by artist Anna Maria Maiolino (which included tables filled with the aforementioned clay), the luxury label Chloé and Gabriel Orozco’s interactive sculpture “Ping Pond Table(Mesa de ping-pong con estanque)” (1988), which is part of MOCA’s permanent.
“What amazes me about this,” Vergne said pointing to Orozco’s absurdly configured pingpong table, “is how people will gather here and start playing and having a conversation … And Anna Maria Maiolino’s [“Untitled Clay Table Installation,” (2017)] similarly brings people to the table — the place where people gather, where things happen, where there’s intimacy. [Fashion] maisons are a little bit like that.”
