Faena Art presented Futopia Faena by Studio Job, an immersive exhibition at the Faena Art Center Buenos Aires (FAC) that narrated four years of collaboration between the art and culture institution and the Dutch design duo.
Futopia Faena by Studio Job transformed Sala Molinos, the main exhibition space of the Argentinian heart of Faena Art, into a roller-disco featuring never-before-seen works by Studio Job.
Sala Molinos became an alternative cathedral of light and color. The design duo intervened with the triple-height, cathedral-style windows of FAC and created stained-glass designs inspired by Faena’s distinct symbology.
Ximena Caminos, chair of FAENA ART and executive director of FAC, says “Studio Job’s bridges the worlds of art and design and blurs the boundaries between the disciplines”.
“Working with Faena is not working” Explains Studio Job. “Playing with Faena is intellectual fun and the upcoming, multi-faceted exhibition at Faena Art Center showcases how our longstanding collaboration with Faena has been an incredible series of inspiring experimentations”.
Faena Art serves as a platform for cultural manifestations, such as those created by Studio Job, that are housed in Faena Art Center Buenos Aires and its soon-to-launch sister venue, Faena Forum, opening in Faena District Miami Beach in the first quarter of 2016.
“Studio job and faena’s ongoing collaboration is a true manifestation of the Faena mission to foster cross-cultural exchange,” added Alan Faena, principal of Faena Group. ‘As we near the opening of the faena district miami beach in november, we are particularly pleased to be able to present commissions they have created for that space with the argentine public”.
FAENA ART is a nonprofit organization whose cultural program transcends disciplines and encourages collaborations across geographical and intellectual borders. Spearheaded by Ximena Caminos, FAENA ART advocates for the fusion of art, recreation, nature, sustainable architecture and technology.
Faena Art brings together some of the greatest minds across these fields in order to redefine the way we live in cities by creating communities that maintain culture at their core.
