Jonathan LeVine Gallery in partnership with ABC Carpet & Home and reGeneration are pleased to announce Art As Lifestyle, an exhibition of works by Dylan Egon. The opening reception will take place on December 1, 2012 from 6—10pm. In support of National Aids Day, a percentage of sales during the opening reception will be donated to AIDS victims of Sandy, a charity supporting people living with AIDS based in New York City who were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Art As Lifestyle represents an exciting collaboration between Egon and reGeneration Furniture. Like many collaborations, this one began with a conversation about the intersection between art and design, resulting in new works that fuse sensibilities and present a fresh aesthetic vision.
Egon is best known for his mixed media assemblage pieces that include imagery from American pop culture. Rivets, a motif throughout the work, are characteristic of the artist’s sense of craftmanship and machinery. This exhibition presents several mixed media collage works, adding context to the pieces that the artist has made in collaboration with reGeneration. The furniture brand’s new line includes several editioned cabinets, upholstery fabric and wool blankets, all featuring graphics by Egon.
In keeping with the artist’s ideals of creating accessible editions, wearable and boutique items screen printed with Egon’s imagery will be available for sale at the opening reception and for the duration of the exhibition.
