Expect something a little extra the next time you find yourself shopping at LOEWE's store in the Miami Design District. An outlet that opened to much fanfare earlier this year, it's particularly striking due to the 18th-century wood granary that creative director Jonathan Anderson had shipped from a town bordering Spain and Portugal. Now, that barn-like structure is the centrepiece for an even bigger initiative — Anderson's first exhibition presented by the LOEWE Foundation.
"This exhibition is a personal snapshot of a single moment, bringing together things that have recently lodged in my mind and shaped my thinking," the creative director elaborates. "For me art is a lens through which to examine the current moment."
Titled 'Chance Encounters', this Art Basel highlight brings together the work of four historical and contemporary British artists: Sculptor Anthea Hamilton, painter and photographer Paul Nash, ceramist Lucie Rie and painter Rose Wylie.
Celebrating tradition and modernity, this effort by Anderson and the LOEWE Foundation brings a thought-provoking and engaging experience to an otherwise regular shopping trip. Hit this space if you're in Miami for the holidays.
'Chance Encounters' runs till 17 January at LOEWE Miami Design District, 110 NE 39th Street.
