Bolstered by the success of its nine previous editions in Miami, New York and Brussels, Cube Art Fair is back in the European capital, with another creative way to feature the talent of its artists.
Critically acclaimed as the World’s Largest Public Art Fair, and known for taking over iconic public places such as gigantic billboards in the middle of Times Square, or projecting artworks on the 500 feet tall Intercontinental Tower in Miami, Cube Art Fair is both an in-person contemporary art fair, and a platform that supports artists through visual impact and brand collaborations. This time, Cube Art Fair is taking over Versace’s flagship store, and curating a special fashion -oriented exhibition , featuring Los Angeles based photographer Markus Klinko.
Versace is at the forefront of creativity in fashion , and I am thrilled that our collaboration with Cube Art Fair will bring the finest creativity in contemporary art into their flagship store. Curating the Markus Klinko show was an exciting process, his artwork captures the spirit of Versace.Gregoire Vogelsang, founder of Cube Art Fair ,and owner of the eponymous Vogelsang Gallery
Recognized widely as the most influential photographer of the 2000s, Markus Klinko‘s work is represented by numerous galleries and museums around the world, while his work featuring David Bowie is often referred to in the global media as “The photos that made David Bowie an icon”. Earlier this year, Fotografiska Museum in New York presented his work , and Artnet News unveiled that The Weeknd is amongst many celebrities who collect Markus’ work.
“I am honored that Cube Art Fair decided to curate this exhibition as part of their collaboration with Versace. I fell in love with Versace in the 80s, I adore the brand , and having my work in their flagship store in the European Capital is a dream come true!” added Markus Klinko.
As part of the Uptown Tour, an organization that promote art and design in luxury venues in Brussels, the Cube Art Fair exhibition will display over 30 iconic artworks from Markus Klinko, including celebrities such as: David Bowie, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and more, in both physical and digital display within the entire Versace boutique.
Markus Klinko’s Bowie work will also be featured in the upcoming HBO series, The Idol, by Euphoria creator James Levinson, starring The Weeknd.
