Salon Art + Design returned to the Park Avenue Armory for its eighth season on Thursday. Exhibitors from thirteen countries gathered to show the best furniture and accessories in modern and contemporary design, coupled with extraordinary 20th and 21st century art.
Nearly 4,000 people attended Thursday’s opening VIP cocktail, hosted by art-world mother and daughter powerhouses Nathalie and Laura de Gunzburg, with all proceeds going to Dia Art Foundation.
“There is a synergy here,” said Nathalie de Gunzburg. “For both Dia and Salon, it’s about creativity and bringing out the best in people – artists, dealers, collectors. I always find tons of things to buy at this fair.”
“Salon is an amazing melting pot of design, vintage, modern and contemporary art,” said Laura de Gunzburg. “In addition to that, Salon is committed to Dia’s mission of supporting artists and helping them realize their visions.”
Laura should know: she is a partner at The Cultivist, opening doors to exclusive art events to members around the world.
“The Cultivist always has something going on; the art world always has an art fair, or another show opening,” said Laura. “At the moment, we have a group of members doing an international trip in Israel, in both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.”
