Park Avenue Armory, New York City
New York and London—Adrian Sassoon, the United Kingdom’s premier gallery for international, contemporary works of art—with a focus on innovative, luxurious objects—will exhibit for the fifth consecutive year at The Salon of Art + Design at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City this fall. The gallery will showcase new and recent pieces—some of which will make their U.S. debut at The Salon—by a dynamic roster of highly skilled and classically trained artists working in traditional materials ranging from ancient hardstones to porcelain, glass, wood, and precious metals. Featured artists include ceramicists Andrew Wicks, Michael Eden, and Kate Malone—all of whom will be present at The Salon Art + Design alongside Adrian Sassoon. Works in steel, silver and glass by Junko Mori, Hiroshi Suzuki and Colin Reid, among others, will also be on display.

Sassoon’s presence at The Salon will serve as a unique platform where traditional sensibilities and cutting-edge technology converge harmoniously through a wealth of contemporary objects. The installation will juxtapose “classic” forms and materials, with computer-generated 3D designs; demonstrating the gallery’s enduring commitment to promoting the continuity of the history of the decorative arts.

A fervent champion of some of today’s most groundbreaking artisans, with an eye for exquisite design and detail, Adrian Sassoon has spent 25 years arranging major solo shows throughout the U.K. and at the world’s most prestigious art fairs. The meticulously curated presentation at the 2017 Salon Art + Design is a testament to Sassoon’s legacy as a trusted expert in the field. Throughout his career, Sassoon has assembled a diverse mix of artists working in a wealth of
materials that continue to be highly coveted by a broad range of collectors,
museums and interior designers worldwide.

“Each of our artists will bring something new to The Salon this year,” comments Adrian Sassoon, “but the common thread throughout our selection is an unparalleled dedication to craftsmanship and a sense of luxury. We are showing works of beauty and originality and presenting them with the same pride and conviction we have demonstrated for the past 25 years. It has always been our
aim to invigorate this exciting field of collecting.”
