laurence-dreyfus-profile-pictureAfter more than 10 successful years in Paris, Laurence Dreyfus is delighted to announce the first edition of Chambres à Part in the United States– an exhibition which reimagines contemporary art and interior design. Chambres à Part will take place between November 28th and December 3rd, during Art Basel Miami. The exhibition is located on Park Avenue in the heart of Miami’s South Beach, a stone’s throw from The Bass Museum and walking distance from the Convention Center. The building is a unique 5-story building and a quintessential representation of the exhibition’s host city, as seen in the legendary 80’s TV series, Miami Vice. This setting is diametrically opposed to the original location for Chambres à Part at the Presidential Suite of the La Réserve Hotel on Avenue Gabriel within Paris’s Right Bank. The inaugural show, titled Small is Beautiful, was hosted during FIAC in 2016.

The enticing atmosphere of Miami inspired Laurence Dreyfus to dig deep and discover new talents fitting the location, an endeavor made possible by her close relationships with collectors, artists and international galleries of iconic oeuvres and contemporary artwork. For this iteration of Chambres à Part, Laurence Dreyfus, in collaboration with Isabelle Kowal, incorporates the vivacious culture of Miami into a dynamic exhibition titled Life is Beautiful.

Life is Beautiful features artists with diverse background and material practices. Laurence Dreyfus and Isabelle Kowal are happy to present artists from Miami such as Cristina Lei Rodriguez and Jillian Mayer, both of whom are already included in Rubell Family Collection, Perez Art Museum Miami and Bass Museum collections. Canadian artist Jean Sébastien Grégoire has created four new burned rope sculptures. New York based artist Soraya Sharghi will present ten exceptional portraits of women that echo the painting of Claire Tabouret and Cecily Brown by balancing abstract and figurative elements. Visitors will also encounter important works by Olafur Eliasson, Mark Hagen, Hernan Bas, Simone Pheulpin, Ugo Rondinone, Hélène de Saint Lager, and many more…

When Art meet Design : For the first time, Laurence Dreyfus exhibits pieces of French furniture. These unique works or limited editions are selected in collaboration with The Invisible Collection.
