Dover Street Market, 160 Lexington at 30th Street, is hosting a wonderful event tonight (Thursday, May 5th) from 6-8 p.m. DSM will present an exciting collection of artists and designers as part of Arts Week. It will be one of a series of arts events occurring around town this week in concert with the annual Frieze Art Fair on Randalls Island.
The ever-evolving Dover Street Market building will host its Arts Week event throughout its seven floor space. With complimentary food and drinks provided by Rose Bakery, and such an open space to randomly view the presentations, the event should be casual and fun.
Ari Marcopoulos will be signing copies of Epiphany, a limited edition book published by IDEA, which he collaborated on with the fashion house Gucci. A great gift for your fashion enthusiast friends, the book features stylized Gucci logos on the front and back covers: one as a black screen-print and the other remade as a holographic snake sticker.
In another section of Dover Street Market, the supremely hip Know Wave online radio show will be hosting a live broadcast alongside a collection of exclusive merchandise designed by Torey Thornton and Eric Mack. Thornton and Mack also collaborated on designing their exhibition space itself for this event.
If you have never seen a copy of Document Journal or visited its website, the journal presents a beautifully curated exposition of all things in the art, fashion and design worlds. Its Spring/Summer print edition is being released at the Arts Week celebration, with collectable covers that include works by Grace Coddington, Hedi Slimane, Anohni and other luminaries of the fashion and design world.
Also on view will be a host of other avant garde aesthetic offerings, including specials by Brain Dead DSMNY, installations by designers such as Maison Margiela and jewelry by Charlotte Chesnais.
Don’t miss out on this celebration of creative design in NoMad. Follow it up with a weekend visit to Frieze Art Fair, which is always an overwhelming feast for the senses.
