On July 6, 2013 the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco held its opening reception for the new show, “I <3 LV,” in which a group of contemporary artists have come together in honor of French fashion house, Louis Vuitton. The artistic history and trademark luxury of Louis Vuitton’s timeless style is clashed with each artist’s own take. From a pink-haired and nose-pierced “Marilyn Vuitton” to a Compton snapback, each piece is unique and characteristic of the artist who produced it, while also incorporating an homage to one of fashion’s most celebrated brands.
The gallery features works from artists such as Nick Flatt, Charmaine Olivia, Greg Gossel, Sergio Garcia, Helen Bayly, Lauren Napolitano, Casey Gray, Chad Hasegawa, Niels Shoe Meulman, Benjamin Clarke, Word to Mother, Ferris Plock, and Apex. The exhibition will be open until August 10, 2013 and is free and open to the public.
