Looking for a creative way of honoring this year’s edition that didn’t end up happening, Salon art and Design‘s team sought a way of recreating themselves and still give the inspiration as the collectible designer‘s admirers are so used to. Meeting the expectation of the entire audience, this digital magazine: The Salon–The Intersection Of Art & Design released during the month of November, seeks to translate the DNA of the show into a collectible, thoughtful publication that celebrates its exhibitors, collectors, and guests.
When we knew that there could be no live salon this year, we looked for other ways to further our platform and meet our exhibitors’ needs. I had spent 20 years as a magazine publisher and been very sorry about the fate of the print media that had played such an outsize role in American culture for over a century. It occurred to me that there might be a kind of retro-chic in producing a magazine, and we moved forward with the idea. It seemed that in this moment of evanescence, people liked the idea of a beautiful object entering their homes, being displayed and referred to overtime. Hence, salon – the intersection of art and design.’writes jill bokor executive director of salon art and design.
Intended to be a highly sought-after collector’s item, this digital magazine spans more than 144 pages of collectible design, featuring scores of striking, cutting-edge modern and historical pieces presented by the top US-based and international art galleries in their fields. This is an utter masterpiece for art furniture lovers!
‘In this most challenging year, as event after the event was canceled, salon wondered if it would meet the same fate.’writes jill bokor executive director of salon art and design.
