Painting by Apex
There’s a certain sense of irony about a Louie Vuitton-themed exhibition featuring a group of irreverent and street-inspired artists like Word to Mother, Chad Hasegawa and Ferris Plock. But Shooting Gallery’s current group show, “I <3 LV," is a loose tribute to the fashion powerhouse's patronage of the art world. Using the iconic logo as a starting point, the pieces in the show range from tongue-in-cheek criticisms of consumerism to graceful portraits that embody the brand's elegance. The exhibition features Greg Gossel, Apex, Ferris Plock, Word to Mother, Helen Bayly, Lauren Napolitano, Chad Hasegawa, Casey Gray, Charmaine Olivia, Nick Flatt, Benjamin Clarke, Sergio Garcia and Niels Shoe Meulman and is on view through August 10. Take a look at our exclusive opening night photos below.
