Jewelry brand Van Cleef & Arpels, part of the Richemont group of companies, has an exhibition of new one of a kind jewelry pieces in a special experience space created by renowned American artist Robert Wilson. The “Noah’s Ark Inspires Van Cleef Arpels” exhibition is at the Cedar Lake event space on West 26th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues in Manhattan. As Ruth La Ferla in The New York Times says, “From Nov. 3 to 19, visitors will be treated to a display of the jeweler’s menagerie of exotic animals, designed as brooches and showcased in a series of recessed glass enclosures cresting and dipping rhythmically along the walls.” For tickets to see the installation, go to ARKVCA.com.
This episode has two parts. First is an interview conducted by Filmmaker Katharina Otto-Bernstein, with the artist Robert Wilson and Van Cleef & Arpels CEO Nicholas Bos. Second is an interview conducted by Charles Beckwith and Cathy Schepis, with the same two gentlemen, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Bos.
Among other things, Charles asks Mr. Wison to talk about light, and Cathy wants to know more about fashion collaborating with the art world.
