Grand Magasin Deux at French Riviera 1988, London
If you are still panicking about your Christmas shopping, it might be worth planning a visit to the Grand Magasin Deux, a special festive project organized by French Riviera 1988 in East London.
After the success of the first edition, artists Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski invited about forty creative makers to contribute with affordable artwork to the ‘shopping show’ – which will be on view until 20th December in the artist-run venue, a former shop then artist’s studio.
The Grand Magasin Deux exhibition features a wide range of diverse practices, from sculptures, prints and ceramics to jewels and textiles, exploring the multiple aspects of the shopping experience; among them, the artwork by Ludovica Gioscia, who curated and co-realized the Pizzemblage sculpture project for Droste Effect.
Grand Magasin Deux is at French Riviera 1988, London through Sunday 20 December 2015.
